Frequently Asked Questions

How do you thicken Broccoli Cheese Soup?

The best way to thicken this soup is to use a roux. To make a roux, you’ll need equal parts butter and flour. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat, then add the flour. Stir until the mixture is smooth, then add it to the soup.

Another way to thicken this soup is to add some cooked rice or pasta. This will also help to bulk up the soup and make it more filling.

Why won’t my cheese melt in my broccoli cheddar soup?

There are a few reasons why your cheese might not be melting in your soup. First, make sure that you’re using a sharp cheddar cheese. Older, more mellow cheeses can be harder to melt.

Second, make sure that your soup is hot enough. If it’s not hot enough, the cheese won’t melt properly.

Finally, make sure that you’re stirring the soup well while you’re adding the cheese. If you don’t stir it enough, the cheese will clump together and won’t melt evenly.

Why is my broccoli cheddar soup not creamy?

There are a few reasons why your soup might not be creamy. First, make sure that you’re using enough cheese. If you don’t use enough cheese, the soup won’t be as creamy.

Second, make sure that you’re using the right kind of cheese. A good cheddar cheese will make for a very creamy soup.

Finally, make sure that you’re not over-stirring the soup. If you stir it too much, the cheese will start to break down and the soup won’t be as creamy.

How to store leftover broccoli and cheese soup?

Leftover broccoli and cheese soup can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

How do you reheat broccoli cheddar soup?

The best way to reheat this soup is in a pot on the stove over low heat. You can also reheat it in the microwave, but be careful not to overcook it. Stir the soup well while it’s heating up so that the cheese doesn’t clump together.
