This tasty broccoli soup is all about the cheese toast topper! This soup is made with milk, no cream and has the most delicious comforting flavor!



  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 2 bunches broccoli chopped into small florets (stems too)
  • 7 cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • 8 thin slices crusty baquette


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring occasionally until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook one minute longer.
  2. Pour in the chicken stock, add the salt, stir and cover. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
  3. Blend the soup using a stick blender until smooth. Stir in the milk and cayenne pepper and taste for seasonings. Cover to keep warm while you make the cheese toasts.
  4. Preheat the broiler.
  5. Divide the cheese among the bread slices and toast under the broiler until melted and golden brown, about 45-60 seconds.
  6. Top each bowl of soup with a cheese toast and serve.
