A helpful tip is to add 2 cups of peeled and diced potatoes to make the soup thick and filling. The tender potatoes will combine with the Cabot Sharp Cheddar for a flavor combination reminiscent of a loaded baked potato. The 3 cups of chopped or sliced broccoli will provide fresh veggies to the soup for a dish that is satisfyingly healthy and filling. Our broccoli cheddar soup is great on its own or you can pair it perfectly with a sandwich for a hearty lunch combination.
