Tackling a Classic

Cheddar broccoli soup is one of the most popular and most frequently purchased soups in stores and restaurants. As a child, I was quite picky, and this was one of the only ways I would eat broccoli.

My goal with this recipe was to create my own perfected version of this soup. Making it is very easy for me because I almost always have the ingredients on hand. I like to serve it with sandwiches on cold rainy days. It's silky and herby with a nice cheddar flavor to balance it all out.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds frozen broccoli
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 4 cups half and half
  • 4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Prep all ingredients.
  2. In a pot, saute onions and carrots until onions become translucent. Add garlic and continue sauteing until fragrant.
  3. Pour in stock and add broccoli. Simmer until vegetables are tender.

        I like the idea of combining broccoli and cheese in a soup. I think the flavours would go together very well. The onion and garlic would be tasty additions, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
