3 tbsp butter
1 small onion, chopped
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 cups half and half (or whole milk)
2 cups vegetable broth
1-2 pounds fresh broccoli florets
1 cup diced carrots
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
1 dash hot sauce (optional)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (low fat is okay)

Heat butter in a large saucepan or dutch oven over medium heat.

Add onions and saute 3 to 5 minutes, until softened.

Sprinkle flour mixture evenly over onions and stir vigorously, 2 to 3 minutes, until no lumps appear and raw flour taste is cooked off.

Add the half and half and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 to 20 minutes.

Add the broccoli and carrots. Cook 15 to 20 minutes until vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork.

Add salt, pepper, hot sauce and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted.

BROCCOLI CHEDDAR SOUP

 

6 tbsp. butter, divided

¾ cup onion, chopped

1 cup carrot, chopped or shredded

4 cups small broccoli florets

3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

½ tsp. onion salt

½ tsp. garlic powder

4 tbsp. flour

2 cups milk

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Freshly ground black pepper

 

 

In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the onion to the pan and sauté until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the carrots to the pan and cook a couple minutes more. Stir in the broccoli, chicken broth, onion salt and garlic powder. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.

 

In a medium saucepan, melt remaining butter. Add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until golden brown, whisking constantly. Whisk in the milk and cook until the mixture thickens and bubbles, about 5 minutes. Once the mixture has thickened, whisk in the cheese until completely melted. Remove from the heat and add the cheese sauce to the soup pot. Allow to simmer until warmed through and broccoli is tender. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. If desired, puree the soup with an immersion blender for a smooth texture.
