Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup- Printable Version

Ingredients:

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium onion (chopped)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half and half
2-3 cups chicken stock
2 cups fresh broccoli (chopped)
1 cup grated carrots
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Saute the onion and olive oil in a Dutch oven pot.
  2. Cooke butter and flour. Stir in half and half.
  3. Add chicken stock and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add broccoli and carrots and cook for 20 minutes.
  5. Add cheese and nutmeg.
  6. Serve hot with bread or in a bread bowl.

Notes:

This recipe rivals that of Panera’s broccoli cheddar soup! You can even purchase Panera bread bowls for about $2 a bread bowl!! Totally worth it!

For this soup, the more broccoli the better! I would go heavy on broccoli, carrots, and of course, cheddar cheese!! All three ingredients make this soup what it is!

I would recommend adding more chicken stock to thin the soup. You can even use 2% or skim milk instead of half and half for a healthier option.
