Broccoli Cheddar Mashed Potato Soup recipe

The ultimate comfort food in a bowl, this rich, creamy, Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup is guaranteed to warm your soul.

  • Total Time: 50 mins
  • Yield: 2 Quarts 1x


  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 C flour
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 pound broccoli florets, chopped
  • 2 cups potatoes, diced
  • 2 Tbsp chicken base
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 cups water
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 Cups Amazing Mashed Potatoes


  1. In a sauté pan, melt butter then add onions and sauté until translucent.
  2. Add flour and cook for 2 minutes over medium heat.
  3. In a large stock pot, add water and bring to a boil.
  4. Add chicken base, broccoli and potatoes and cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  5. Reduce heat to low and add carrots.
  6. Cook for 5 minutes and using a stick blender, blend until smooth.
  7. Add milk and heat for 5 minutes.
  8. Combine the onions mixed with flour and stir over medium heat until thickened.
  9. Add cream and cheddar cheese and stir until cheeses are melted.
  10. Add paprika and nutmeg and stir.
  11. Salt and pepper to taste.
  12. To serve, place 1/2 Cup mashed potatoes in bowl and top with 1 Cup soup.
  13. Garnish with cheese and salt and pepper to taste.


  1. SERVE IT WITHOUT THE MASHED POTATOES: While we think serving this soup over mashed potatoes is what makes it special, the recipe is solid on its own. It still has plenty of cheesy potato flavor.
  2. USE INSTANT MASHED POTATOES: a good cheat to this recipe is to use boxed potato flakes. They are super easy to make and taste pretty good.
  3. STORAGE TIPS: broccoli and potato soup can be kept up to 5 days in the refrigerator. It also freezes well (in an air tight container) for comfort food on demand.
  4. FROZEN BROCCOLI can be substituted for fresh broccoli in a pinch.
