This recipe has been shared in Meal Plan Monday and Weekend Potluck. Head on over to these great sites for LOTS of new recipes each week!

This recipe is adaptable:

I usually make this soup with frozen vegetables. This can certainly be made with all broccoli or all cauliflower; whatever you have on hand. I have also used leftover roasted vegetables, raw vegetables or a mixture! Just use 8 cups of vegetables and you are set!

My original recipe called for two 16 ounce bags of vegetables but that size bag is getting harder and harder to find (in my stores, anyway). I can usually only find the 12 oz bags. I have lately been making the recipe with three 12 oz bags and it is totally fine so I modified the recipe when I gave it a facelift 6/10/19.

It can be made with either 32 oz or 36 oz of vegetables. Either is fine! It is only a differene of 4 oz and it doesn’t matter. It also doesn’t matter if you use more broccoli or more cauliflower or all of one or the other.

ingredients for Creamy Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Soup

broccoli 

 cauliflower 

 chopped onions

 chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegetarian)

 heavy whipping cream

 shredded cheddar cheese

 Neufchatel cheese

Instructions

Gather your ingredients. You can use fresh or frozen (thaw it for faster cooking but you don’t have to) broccoli and cauliflower. You could even use all broccoli or all cauliflower. I love the pre-cut onions in the frozen section of the store for things like this.

Add the vegetables and broth to your pot. Bring to a boil and simmer gently until the vegetables are soft; about 20 minutes.

I use my Hamilton Beach hand blender to very easily and quickly blend it into a creamy soup.  With two attachments that come off of the main part, it is very simple to wash too.

You can also mash it a little or a lot with a potato masher so it is chunky or smooth, whatever you like. The more you mash it, the creamier it will be.

Add the cheeses and cream and stir it until it melts. You can also use a whisk to smooth it in. It is ready to serve when the cheese is melted.
