Looking for a delicious dinner to literally whip up in a matter of minutes? This Quick & Easy 4 Ingredient Broccoli Cheese Soup is right up your alley!
Sometimes when I watch my 4 year old bounce around the house from the moment he wakes up to the second he goes to bed, I envision I could syphon just a little bit of energy from him. You know, enough to give me a little motivation & make me feel no so zombie-ish – and enough to calm Mr. Wild Child Ball-of-Energy down just a smidgen.
But alas – there is no such thing as that because if there was, the sale of energy drinks & supplements wouldn’t be the multi-billion dollar industry that it is today.
This recipe is designed to keep all of zombie adults out of the drive-thru because even if you’re dragging your feet with exhaustion, you can still easily pull this broccoli cheese soup off. I actually got the recipe for this soup from the cashier at HomeGoods – she wrote it on the back of my receipt for me, & I just had to try it.
I’m not going to lie and tell you that it’s the best broccoli cheese soup ever, because it’s not (but I will be sharing that recipe soon!) – but it IS good! It’s perfect for those drag-your-zombie-feet nights!
Here’s what you need:
First thing is to cook your broccoli. I buy the 12oz packages of the fresh broccoli florets that steams in it’s own back in the microwave. I like a lot of broccoli in mine, but you can use less if you’d like.
Mix together the family size can of cream of chicken soup with 1 cup of milk in a saucepan, & heat til hot. Add in the cooked broccoli. You can add a little more milk if you’d like a thinner consistency.
Now, stir in 2 cups of cheddar cheese.
Heat the mixture until hot, season with a little pepper if need be, & serve.
Wasn’t that easy??
- 10 to 12oz of fresh broccoli, cooked
- 1 family sized cream of chicken soup
- 1 cup (or more to taste) of milk
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- Combine first 3 ingredients in a pot. Heat until warm. Add the cheese, stir - and cook until the cheese is melted & mixture is hot. Add extra milk if you want a thinner consistency.
