Broccoli Cheese Soup


I love broccoli and cheese soup.  The unfortunate part is not everyone makes a good broccoli soup. Sometimes I’ll go to a restaurant and the soup is just nasty. I’ve tried a few different recipes and I’ve not really cared for any of them. This one has been the best one yet. I’ve made it a good handful of times. I really like it and I know that if you try it you’ll quickly love it too.

4 tablespoons onion

5 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 cups half and half

2 cups chicken broth

8 oz broccoli

1 cup shredded carrot

salt and pepper

2 cups grated cheddar cheese


sauté onion with 1 tablespoon of butter. set aside.


With a wire whisk combine remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and flour.  stir frequently about 4 minutes.


slowly add half and half and broth. simmer 20 minutes.


add veggies. cook til tender.


Pour into a blender and blend.

return to heat and add cheese. until well blended.
