Description

A creamy delicious cheddar cheese soup with bits of broccoli.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 Cup Onion, diced
  • 1/4 Cup Carrot, shredded
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 1 Cup Chicken Broth, warm
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 2 Cups Broccoli, chopped in small pieces
  • 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream, warmed
  • 1 Tablespoon Cream Cheese
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese (sharp or mild)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 pepper)

Instructions

  1. Begin by melting the butter (or ghee) in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Add the onions and carrots and sauté until they soften – approx. 3-4 min.  Season with a little salt and pepper as they cook.
  2. Add the garlic and sauté another 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  3. Add the flour and whisk for 1-2 minutes, stirring with a whisk.  Slowly add the warmed chicken broth and water allowing the soup come to a boil.  Turn the stove down to low (or take it off the heat entirely) and add the cream.  Stir to incorporate.
  4. Add the cream cheese and slowly add the cheddar cheese about 1/4 cup at a time, ensuring it has completely melted before adding any more.  If you would like a smoother soup, now is the time to use an immersion blender to the desired consistency.
  5. Add the broccoli and taste for seasonings.  Let the soup simmer 10 min or until broccoli softens.
  6. Serve hot.
