This 10-Minute Broccoli Cheese Soup will knock your socks off! Not only does it take 10 minutes to make, but its creamy, cheesy and oh so yummy. Grab some broccoli and cheese and get cooking! 

My baby has been teething for a few weeks and has now become sick.

I kind of want to kill myself.

Four teeth are slowly making their way through Blake’s gums…cutting, poking and inflamming the trail as they make their way out towards daylight.

Those dirt bags.

Because he’s sick AND teething, I try to drug his up as best as I can before bed, but it’s only a matter of time until he wakes up coughing and crying. There’s only so much I can do and I’m struggling to get more than a 4 hour stretch….one day it’ll happen but today is not that day. Tomorrow isn’t looking good either.

It’s times like these where I want to hibernate FOREVER and tell my husband to quit the National Guard and just come home. Just put me in a dark quiet room and wake me up in May. SERIOUSLY.

No sleep makes it really hard to find motivation to cook healthily too. Why would I make the effort to chop veggies for dinner when I can just eat some chocolate and heat up a frozen dinner? I mean REALLY.

Priorities, people.

So, this is an attempted dinner I made {amid the groggy haze that is my life} to get my kids to eat veggies with as little work as possible. It worked for Brooke, but Blake was a little more hesitant…but I’m pretty sure that was his ailments talking.

This soup literally takes 10 minutes to make and tastes surprisingly wonderful. Yes, I use a condensed soup. Yes I don’t like to use condensed soups. Yes I like long walks on the beach. Wait, what was the question?

But there comes a point in every mother’s life where saving your sanity means using a can of completely processed soup. So sue me.

But don’t actually really because I couldn’t take it. Orrrr I’d sleep right through the whole thing. Hashtag awkward.

Anyways, there’s a great broccoli cheese soup in my ecookbook that is the bomb, so I created the general idea of that soup but with a faster and easier method.

Fast and easy you guys.

That’s what she said.

Sorry. That’s the exhaustion talking.

Anyways, if you are into soups and frozen vegetables and all fast recipes, then you’re welcome. If not, then here’s a great salad recipe that will make your mind explode.

That is all.

Have a fabulous weekend.

  2. Sorry, Mommy, about the teething. It’s awful, isn’t it? I remember it well, even though my babies are 28 and 30 years old now. Bless your heart — this too shall pass. Hang in there!

  3. just a f.y.i. I found a easy and flavorful way to top off this soup. I use cheddar cheese sauce by Prego . I never use processed foods but there are times when it pays. My family appreciates it more than when I shredded and say it has a wonderful and unique flavor.

  4. Sweet girl, I love reading your blog and I love your recipes, but please consider editing the line where you teasingly say you kind of want to kill yourself. I have a precious friend at church…..her son committed suicide not long ago. I know you don’t mean anything by what you are saying but it could be very hurtful to a lot of people. I truly say this kindly and with love. Blessings to you! And yes, teething is tough!

  5. I hope Blake feels better soon and that you somehow manage to squeeze in an epic powernap ASAP!

  6. This looks delicious! I’m hoping it will be a yummy food for a toddler who’s getting his 2-year molars and doesn’t want to eat ANYTHING.

    Is it freezable? Always handy to have small meals in the fridge for those days when you just can’t open your eyes enough to cook.

  7. If people get mad at you for using processed soup when you’re taking care of two kiddos by yourself (one who I’m sure is a cranky, crabby mess) then THEY are the dirt bags! This looks delicious, and we ALL need something fast sometimes!

  8. Ooooh, I hope you both can get some sleep — at least you have this wonderful soup! I think cream of broccoli with cheese is the ultimate comfort food <3

  9. Hey, you do what you have to do in times like this. Does he like scrambled eggs? Breakfast is always easy. Maybe a protein fruit smoothie, nice and cold on those gums.
    As a mom of two boys ages 11 and 12 and a husband with a job that requires travel I know how you feel. We didn’t let our boys watch TV and I fed them healthy food BUT when they (or I) were sick……TV and whatever I could get them to eat.
    You’re a good mom. Don’t worry about it.

  10. What is half & half pls? I am in Australia and haven’t heard of it. Recipe sounds yummy. Good luck with the teething = I rubbed lemon juice on my babies gums and it helped

    • Half & Half is half cream half milk.

  11. Sorry about the teething…all three of my kids (along with me) suffered with every tooth. I used to say when they were finished that I would cheer endlessly. It will pass, but it’s certainly not easy. Take care.

  12. UGH!!!! Remember those days! Hang in there…feel your pain. Not getting enough sleep was the worst. Thank you for the recipe though…yum!

  13. I saw this on the chew. From Oz’s daughter. For teething pain, give your child a frozen waffle to chew on. She claims that it was a life saver. I hope it works for you.

  14. This winter, I seem to be hooked on soups, and broccoli is the leader.

  15. I’m feeling a bit under the weather and this is the perfect soup! It’s quick, easy, and delicious!

    I added a bit of carrot and a clove of garlic in with the broccoli and used Vermont extra sharp cheddar. So good!!! Thanks for sharing. I don’t think I could stand to make anything more labor-intensive, but this really hits the spot!

  16. This was WONDERFUL and thankfully easy as promised! Lauren, you saved my evening…and the sanity of two working parents (of a sleepless, teething toddler!) who needed a delicious, comforting recipe just like this one. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
