Broccoli and Cheese Soup
This simple Broccoli Cheese Soup is creamy and rich and one of my favorite soup recipes.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 cup onion (diced)
- ½ teaspoon minced garlic
- 3 cups chicken broth
- ½ teaspoon thyme
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- 3 cups broccoli (chopped)
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 ½ cup half and half
- 1 cup sharp cheddar (shredded)
- ⅓ cup grated parmesan
Melt butter in a soup pot. Add onions and allow to saute for 2-3 minutes. Add in minced garlic and allow to saute for 30 seconds. Slowly whisk in chicken broth.
Add all seasonings and chopped broccoli to your soup. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and allow to simmer until broccoli is tender about 10-15 minutes.
In a separate mixing bowl whisk together flour and the half and half. Bring your soup to a boil then add this in and whisk together well.
Remove from heat and mix in shredded sharp cheddar and grated parmesan until cheese is melted and well combined.
