- Finely chop the onion, carrots, and celery. Mince the garlic. Chop broccoli into 1/2-inch florets, and finely chop any broccoli stems. Set garlic and broccoli aside.
- Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, and salt. Saute until vegetables are softened, 6-7 minutes.
- Add the minced garlic and mustard and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Sprinkle the flour over vegetables and stir to evenly coat.

This tasted SO good! I didn’t add the mustard or cloves of garlic and it was still very flavorful. Definitely going to make this again!

Delicious! As others suggested, I did add heavy cream instead of whole milk to thicken some and Velveeta since I had some to use up as well as some little potatoes so yummy!

Excellent recipe. I read earlier comments and wanted to avoid a "thin" soup one person mentioned, so I substituted heavy cream for milk. Came out very thick and filling. Exactly what I was looking for. Family loved it, a keeper recipe for sure.

This broccoli cheese soup is flavorful, but very thin, even after adding in an additional slurry of flour at the end. Additionally, 2 cups of shredded cheese was not enough. For a hearty cheesy soup, it needs at least one more cup for a total of three. If I were to make it again, I’d probably cut the broth and milk in half and replace the missing amount of liquid with heavy cream or half in half to help thicken it up. Overall, the soup is good and if you’re looking for a lighter (and slightly healthier) broccoli cheese soup, then it fits the bill.

Really easy and really good. I used 2% milk Velveeta cheese. Lots of flavor and a big hit with the family. I will make this again.

I made a few substitutes to make dairy free by adding ripple instead of milk, vegan cheese, and a little bacon for flavor. the kids enjoyed but I think next time I'll add a little spice.

Really nice soup - substituted the Dijon mustard for honey wholegrain as that's what I had - otherwise as directed, maybe slightly less cheese. Would make it again

This was amazing!!! I did make some small changes. I added a cup of Kale, an extra bit of garlic and since I was using low fat milk I added an extra cup, some parsley and crispy bacon on top and blended mine with a hand mixed so it was smoother.😋

I was pleasantly pleased with how great this turned out. It is a quick, delicious soup on a cold day.

I made it exactly like the recipe described. Super delicious. Well seasoned, even though there wasn’t anything besides salt and pepper. With the exception of the fourth cup flour, it is Keto friendly. Wonderful and hearty on a chilly day.
