My club is having a lunch meeting next Friday and I would like to make Broccoli and Cheese Soup as an alternative to a meat based soup due to the Lenten Season. My question is can I make this up ahead of time and reheat it for the lunch or will it loose the thickness? Any suggestions? There will be approximatly 50 people attending. Thanks.

I forgot to mention that this is a social club and I am a volunteer cook.

Yes, you can make this soup up ahead of time. Be sure to thicken it with roux which will give the soup more richness and texture. Save a few blanched small florettes to add to the soup when re-heating for color.
