Dinner on a Dime: Broccoli & Cheese Soup!

My husband and I are both in love with Subway’s Broccoli and Cheese Soup! However — I am not in love with the price for a small bowl of it! So I asked around for a great broccoli and cheese soup … after trying a few out, I picked my favorite! I love this recipe because it is quick, easy, and cheap. Also great for when you are running low on meat items!
Ready to make dinner with me, on a dime of course?

Broccoli & Cheese Soup


2 Tablespoons Butter FREE
2 Cans of Chicken Broth $.98
1 Cup of milk (I used 2%) $.15
2 cups of chopped broccoli (or 1 frozen bag) $.44
1½  cups shredded cheddar cheese $.49
1  Onion $.27
2 Celery Stalks $.14
2 Carrots $.10
2 Tablespoons of Flour $.02


1. Saute carrots, onions, and celery with butter.
2. Once tender, mix the flour in.
3. Add both cans of chicken broth in.
4. Add your broccoli in, and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5. Once your broccoli is tender, turn heat down. Add milk in. Make sure your soup is not boiling or your milk will curdle.
6. Add in your cheese and stir. I let mine cook on lower heat for about 15 minutes more. My husband’s soup must be thick or he will whine like a 2 year old, so I usually add a little corn starch water mixture after the cheese.
7. Serve it up! 🙂


Potato Rolls – $.99

TOTAL COST:  $3.58
