  1. In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, broccoli, and broth.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. With a potato masher, mash the broccoli until broken up into small pieces (you can also use a hand-held blender for a smoother texture).
  4. Add the sour cream and cheese. Continue to heat and stir until cheese is melted.
  5. Season with black pepper.
  • The mashed potatoes in this recipe give the soup a thick, creamy texture without adding cream.
