The last post included a Beer Cheese Sauce made with American wheat ale, cheddar, and smoked Gouda for a sweet n’ smoky explosion of flavor that I turned into a soup.

Leftover Cheese Sauce Broccoli Soup

The Cheese Beer Sauce that went with this Puff Pastry Sausage Braid made a lot. After using it on my baked potatoes, I decided to make a broccoli soup with it as well.

The soup is a little thin because I decided to use broth instead of yogurt. I didn’t want the yogurt to take away flavor from the cheese sauce.

Even though it’s not a thick hearty soup, the flavor is there. The sweet n’ smoky taste from the Gouda comes through and then I spiced it up a little by throwing in some white pepper.

I have a Vitamix so I just blended it on high for 7 minutes until steam started coming out of the top. You can either have a completely smooth soup or you can lightly pulse some reserved broccoli florets in after the long blend.

Broccoli or Broccolini are both fine. I used leftover broccolini so it was already steamed. If you have a Vitamix though just throw the raw in and it will be cooked.

Sprinkle your favorite crackers on top, grate some more cheese on top, and serve.

  1. Man, your food photography makes everything look so freaking good!!! I love broccoli soup and the fact you used BEER CHEESE SAUCE?!?! Gah, I’m so hungry now I can’t stand it 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Christina, that really makes my day when I hear that! And I want to put beer cheese sauce in everything now. I think I purposely make way too much of it so I can use it in other things.
