Cheesy Broccoli & Rice Soup Recipe

Cheesy Broccoli & Rice Soup Recipe
This soup can be done in a crockpot or on the stovetop. When my men are away I always make a meatless meal for myself. I don’t care if I have meat so easy one pot food is what I normally concoct. Most of the soup recipes I make can be doubled and one batch can be frozen. This recipe is great for that, it freezes well and makes for a hearty meal on days you don’t feel like cooking. I put the extra batch in a ziplock and lay it flat on the shelf to freeze, it takes up less space this way and once it’s frozen I can stack it with my other soup meals.

  1. I’ll think I’ll try this recipe, Dawn, but I’ll substitute vegetable stock. I love cheese and I LOVE broccoli! Thanks.


  2. What a great soup recipe Dawn….perfect for these cold winter days…I have had a broccoli, cheese an rice casserole, but never soup….another recipe that will be placed in my recipe box!…thanks!!….Have a great weekend!

    1. Shirley if you liked the casserole you will love the soup.

  3. Hi Dawn,
    I have had the broccoli rice casserole but never tried the soup. I think with all the snow we are going to get tomorrow I may have to try this for a nice warm dinner. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds really yummy.

    1. Kris, we are gearing up for the snow tomorrow too. I’m going to make chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles.

  4. Cheryl Major says:

    This soup sounds so good. I think that I will be making it in the next couple of days . We are going through a deep freeze right now so at -42 C it will be welcomed.

    1. Cheryl I know what you mean it’s freezing here to, I think Im over winter.

  5. Just made this soup for husband and boys that are sick but tired of chicken soup. Used leftovers I had on hand and also threw in some leftover ham. Delicious!!! But as a side note, if adding ham don’t add additional salt. Thanks for the recipe ! !

    1. Tammy I’m so glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the ham and no added salt tip. I love ham but hubby is allergic to pork so I only eat it when he’s out of town. I don’t want his food getting contaminated with mine.

  6. Sherry J. says:

    This is such a great soup recipe! Some of the cheese didn’t melt completely. I️ used shredded cheese from a package instead of shredding my own. Do you think the packaged shredded cheese had something added which made it clump?

    1. Sherry, yes it does and the agent makes it so it doesn’t stick together in the package, that won’t happen if you shred your own 🙂
