Broccoli-Potato Soup

One of my easy go to recipes for a quick fix during the week is Broccoli-Potato Soup. I like mine chuncky too. No blender for me. It is so easy to prepare and is a great comfort food. I find it easy on the tummy too. I'm always mindful of my digestive disorders as many of you are too.

Here I started off with two potato's and a small head of broccoli. Cook cut up potatos in 1 can of chicken broth and water till right at done and add chopped fresh broccoli. Cook about 5-7 minutes with just enough liquid to keep it covered. Don't cook the broccoli too long or it will become mushy. Add 1 can of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup and 1/2-1 can of water depending on the consistency you like. I added shredded cheese to the soup. Whatever cheese you like. I used Jack and chedder. I also added bacon and onion powder to the soup.

Salt and pepper to taste. Top with more cheese, onions, more bacon and sour cream. This makes two servings for me.

Really this is easy and you just need to put what you like on top or in the soup.

I have a fresh head of broccoli and fresh potatos. I will probably whip this up for dinner tonight.


  1. Wow bet that tastes good. We also prefer chunky soup with those sort of ingredients. Yum yum. Diane

  2. This sounds like it would be good comfort food on a chilly day. I bet it really hits the spot. :)

  3. Well, I have potatoes and broccoli are easy to find... :-)

  4. I'm adding this to my soup recipes. Sounds great!
