broccoli cheddar soup


Another successful “Soup Sunday” in the books.  We tried this Broccoli Cheddar soup and as much as I am not a huge creamy soup fan, this was excellent!  My husband is a creamy soup fan so I have been making some different soups for him.  Check out the recipe below and let me know your thoughts!

1/2 chopped Onion
1/4 cup melted Butter
1/4 cup Flour
2 cup Half and Half
2 cup Chicken Stock
2 large bunches Broccoli
2 Carrots
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
8 oz shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cut carrots into small strips.
Break apart broccoli florets into small pieces.
Saute Onion in 1 tbsp of melted butter until transparent.
Make a roux using remainder of melted butter and flour. Cook about 5 minutes over medium heat.


Add in half and half stirring constantly.


Add in chicken stock and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add vegetables and cook for 25 minutes over low heat.


If you want a smooth soup, at this point puree in a blender and return to heat or use immersion blender.

Add cheese and nutmeg.


Add salt and pepper to taste.
