I thought they were all over. The McCafes in Germany are really giving Starbucks a run for their money. Who'd have thought that?

I don't like anyone's broccoli soup or broccoli cheese soup ever since a friend of mine gave me some chicken broccoli cheese soup she had made...that stuff is SO GOOD that I just can't eat any others! Luckily she gave me the recipe, so I'm set. It's really high in calories though so I only make it like once a year!

You can't make a post like this and not share the recipe.

I agree, once you've had a good homemade soup the other just don't compare!

I LOVE Panera's broccoli soup! MMmmmmmm......

I can't eat McDonald's. My stomach gets soooo upset! I do still love their fries but since its been about 6 months since eating any fast food, I don't really crave them anymore

One word....MSG, a naturally occurring and added food ingredient that improves flavor, or increases our sensitivity to said flavors. It actually makes one's brain think that something is great, and want more and more, even if it isn't that good! (Don't get me started on MSG here though, or this will wind up in the IMO forum, lol!)


here's the list of ingredients from McD's site...
Water, broccoli, cream, modified food starch, cheddar cheese (milk, cheese culture, salt, enzyme), vegetable oil (corn, canola, cottonseed or partially hydrogenated soybean oil), contains less than 2% of the following ingredients: pasteurized process cheese spread (American cheese [pasteurized milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes], water, whey, sodium phosphate, whey protein concentrate, skim milk, salt, milkfat, artificial color), dried dairy blend (whey, calcium and sodium caseinate), enriched flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), salt, parmesan cheese (pasteurized milk, cheese culture, salt, enzyme), sugar, flavoring (natural flavors including dairy products and autolyzed yeast extract, disodium phosphate), potato starch, yeast extract, sodium phosphate, onion powder, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, spice. CONTAINS: MILK, WHEAT (Source: http://app.mcdonalds.com/bagamcmeal?...m&itemID=10123)

LOL here is the recipe!

Very Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Cheese Soup

Ingredients:

* 4 cups water
* 2 chicken boullion cubes
* 2-3 cups diced potatoes
* 1 box or bag frozen broccoli florets
* 2 cups carrots
* 1 onion (optional, I don't use it)
* 2 cans condensed Cream of Chicken soup
* milk (1 Cream of Chicken can)
* 1 to 1 1/2 lbs Velveeta (Use 1 1/2 lbs if you like it very cheesy)

Dice the potatoes and cut carrots and onions (if using) into small pieces. Dice the Velveeta into small cubes and store in the fridge.
Pour 4 cups of water and 1-2 chicken boullion cubes into a LARGE pot, and bring to a boil. Add diced potatoes (and carrots/onions if you're using them). After about 10 minutes,(original recipe said 5 minutes, but the broccoli disintegrates if you put it in too soon) add the box/bag of broccoli. (if the pieces are very large, you can break them up into smaller pieces).
Cook about 15 minutes, or until the veggies are done.
Add 2 cans Cream of Chicken soup and one soup can of milk.
Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes.
Slowly add the Velveeta cubes while stirring.
Cook, stirring often, until all cheese is melted.

Serve with italian bread for dipping.
Leftover soup can be frozen or refrigerated, and taste great reheated in the microwave or on the stove.

Is there an idea for a substitute for velveeta as we don't have it here in NZ? That recipe sounds so good and it would go well in my household as my husband is a broccoli nut.

There is a little cafe here called Mutha Shuckers (not kidding) that has the best clam chowder in a bread bowl. If any fellow Californians have ever had the clam chowder in Pismo, it is even better than that! It is a meal in itself and is quite yummy!

I don't really like cooked broccoli, but love cream of broccoli soup without the cheese... It has to be very creamy though

McDonalds here does not have soup.

A substitute for Velveeta? Uh...yellow elmers glue?

Velveeta is a soft "cheese food" that is high in oil content and low in cheese content. A prominent place-holder in the "yellow" food group.

Need any more Velveeta jokes?

What do you use for grilled cheese sandwiches? I imagine any kind of "soft" cheese that easily melts would do, i.e., something with the consistency of mozzarella or the Kraft individually wrapped sandwich slices.

We do have the individually wrapped sandwich cheese slices. I could try that. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thank you. The potatoes sound like a good addition! I'll probably use something other than Velveeta, too, or use less of it.

I don't normally like Velveeta, but the soup is just sooo good!

If you can't get Velveeta, a mild cheddar or American cheese melted with milk might work, or yellow/orange processed cheese slices. Another possibility is if you can find a condensed cheddar soup perhaps, or find a recipe for cheddar soup, find out what they use to melt the cheddar into a creamy consistency for it...

Velveeta works well for these kinds of soups because it's not as oily as cheddar. I've got a recipe for a soup with frozen broccoli, carrots & cauliflower, southern hash browns, water & velveeta. It's amazing.
