I LOVE broccoli cheese soup. I try every new recipe I find and this is no exception. It looks really good.
Everyone who has tried it has liked it. Hope you do too Maureen.
Velveeta? Are you kidding? Canned soup? Are you kidding?
I don't cook from a can or fake cheese. It's not that much to make things from scratch.
Sorry I don't like this recipe.
Hi Glenda, I think it's wonderful that you don't cook from a can. Unfortunately, not everyone has the know how and/or time to cook everything from scratch 🙂 I believe that cooking from home, even when it means using convenience foods, is preferable to a steady diet of eating out and fast food.

Do you know how many servings it makes?
Hi Barbara, Yes, It makes 4 servings of about 1 cup each. Hope this helps 🙂
I was wondering if you could use fresh broccoli? If using fresh how much would I use? Thanks
Hi Karyn, Yes, you can use fresh broccoli. I would use about 4 cups of chopped fresh broccoli. Hope this helps.
I make this for my family often and we love it. However, if you are eating it for a meal, I would recommend tripling the recipe. The original makes only two adult sized bowls. We like leftovers, and my kids love soup.
Thanks for your suggestions, Adrienne.
Mine is really runny. But I also had one can of rice soup and I tripled the recipe, in place I used a little extra chicken broth and strained chicken noodle soup broth... How can I thicken it up?
Hi Lacey, Not sure why yours was runny. I like to puree soups with a stick blender to give them more body/thickness without added calories. Hope this helps.
I can’t wait to make it, but was wondering if it can be frozen? My Daughter is away in college (Boston), but I’m in the mood for it now. Can it be frozen, or do I have to make her the soup when she comes home?
Hi Donna, I haven't tried to freeze this.
This online version says 1 cup = 3 green points, 134 calories. In your recipe book that I purchased, it says 1 cup = 4 green points, 143 calories. Just wanted to let you know, I’m still looking forward to making it.
Hi Sharon, Thanks for letting us know. I've double checked. 4 is correct. Have updated the online recipe. ~Martha
Loved how easy it is to make. Yummy!!
I have not tried this yet, but am planning to. Does it have to be blended in the end? Or can you just leave the broccoli whole?
Hi Susan we like it blended, but of course you can eat it however you would like!! ~Martha
Does the chicken rice soup have to be a condensed version? I have progresso which is not condensed. Or just add less broth maybe?
Hi Nancy, I've only made it with the condensed version, so I'd say maybe a little less broth, or it might be fine. My sister has made it with just chicken broth and cooked rice and liked it too!
I had everything at home to make this soup-we've been having cooler, rainy weather so this was the perfect additions to my evening meal. My frozen broccoli was 2 oz larger but that didn't affect the flavor-which was delicious! Although, this soup was very salty so I'm assuming my chicken broth was too salty & I'll note that for future reference. I love soup so I will be making this recipe again. I used my emersion blender to make a great creamy soup. MDH thought it was very good too. Thanks again Martha for the great recipes.
How much chicken broth & cooked rice could I add to substitute for canned chicken and rice soup? Thank you.
Hi Donna, I've never done this but would guess 1/2 to 3/4 cup of cooked rice and about 1-1/4 cups of chicken broth. Hope this helps. ~Martha
We loved this soup. Sooo easy and so tasty. Only problem was it didn’t make enough!!! ?. My husband is a big soup eater. I added extra broth and some instant brown rice to the crock pot. It was GREAT!!!! Will definitely be making it again!!!
