Broccoli Potato Soup Recipe Tips

  • POTATOES: Yellow or red potatoes work well for this soup (we love Yukon Gold potatoes). Russet potatoes also work well.
  • BROCCOLI: Use about 5 cups of chopped broccoli (into small florets). You can use fresh broccoli or frozen broccoli for this recipe. If you have leftover broccoli from dinner the night before, feel free to use that. And if you like the broccoli stems you can use those too, just chop them up into small pieces and include them as part of the 5 cups of broccoli.
  • MILK: Use whole milk or half + half cream.
  • BROTH: You can use chicken broth or vegetable stock.
  • SHREDDED CHEESE: Use a flavourful cheddar cheese like a sharp or old cheddar.
  • LEFTOVERS: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days. Either reheat it on the stove or in the microwave.
  • FREEZING: This soup freezes well. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw, then reheat in a pot on the stove.
  • OPTIONAL TOPPINGS: This soup is perfect on it’s own. But feel free to add extra toppings, to individual servings, like sliced green onion, parmesan cheese, crumbled crispy bacon and even a dollop of sour cream.
