This is a good base recipe, and by now I've made it so many times that I'm really perfected my technique! Cheddar Broccoli soup has always been my favorite comfort food, and I am so glad to have it back in my life!
My changes (in addition to the listed ingredients): I make this with "Not Chik'n" broth rather than plain water, I add 3/4 C shredded "cheddar cheese," 1/8 C each tofutti cream cheese and tofutti sour cream, 1 1/2 C diced potatoes, at least 2 TBSP EB butter, minced garlic, paprika... and I think that might be it. All together I use about 4 cups rice milk and 3 1/2 or 4 cups broth.
This is the only vegan recipe I've found that tastes exactly like the omni version, and I am so thankful that you posted it!


I think I'm gonna do this up tonight but I was wondering: is it okay to use regular soy milk? I don't have any unsweetened; I just don't want to end up with a sweet cheese and broccoli soup...ick!


I was curious of the Nutritional Information of this since it tasted so great!! Thought I would post it for anyone else that wanted it.

I've made this several times now and this is a perfect soup base. Although its great the way it is, I think it adds a lot more flavor when using vegetable stock instead of water. I've added brocolli and other times I've also thrown in other veggies and it always turns out great and AMAZINGLY simple. Perfect for a simple, fast yet delish meal.


I made this yesterday and it was so delicious! I'm actually eating leftovers as I type this - it's even better the next day! I added a whole lot more garlic and dash more onion. I also put in about 2 tsps sweet basil - SO WONDERFUL! This is a great sick day soup especially since it's so simple to make and mess around with ingredients.  ;)b


This was good! I didn't have soymilk, so I used 3 cups of water and boiled it with the nut. yeast, seasonings, butter, broccoli, a small potato, and two carrots. Then added the flour. Reminded me of a pot pie filling, I may try that! Also, I thought that 2 tsp of salt would be too much, so I used 1 tsp and was going to add more to taste, but it didn't need more, IMO.


Almost too simple and good to be true  ;)b

I'm so glad I doubled the recipe.


:)>>>  this was sooo good! we didnt have any broccoli so we used potatoes and mushrooms and was awesome! i posted the pics too! ill try it next time with the broccoli! this is now my fav soup!  ;)b


Made this last was soooooo delish!!! Took it to a meat-eater friend who had surgery yesterday. He loved it!  ;)b


I made this last week and it was really good. I found that I had to add more soy milk, but that could be because I might have used a bit more broccoli than called for.... oops! It still turned out delish! Thanks for sharing!
