When the weather gets colder, it can only mean one thing: It’s soup season. We love our creamy tomato bisques and chunky, bacon-laden potato soups—there’s even a place for a brothy veggie soup in our lineup—but there’s one soup that always comes out on top when we’re talking about nostalgia. Our fan-favorite Broccoli Cheddar Soup is a gateway to childhood. It always brings to mind memories of chilly weekends and scarf-wrapped adventures. It’s also just plain delicious to boot. This soup is easy to put together—which is probably why it was on heavy rotation during our childhoods—and it makes a great option for weeknight dinners.It’s also great for leftovers. Our Test Kitchen advises, “When reheating this soup, do it slowly to ensure the cheese doesn’t separate and break. The potato helps stabilize the emulsion, but still. Better to be careful!” It’s a true 30-minute soup, and it reliably turns out velvety and smooth. Plus, the flavor is very, very cheesy. Just how we like it. Add croutons or serve in a bread bowl for extra pizzazz and texture. Soup’s on!
