Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

Learning how to make soup was one of the best things I’ve ever done. For the most part they are fairly easy to make & are perfect on a cold day. Ryan has been battling a pretty nasty viral cold that’s been going around so I made him some cheddar & broccoli soup tonight. This is great tasting soup!

Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 pepper salt
  • 1 head broccoli(or 16oz frozen chopped broccoli)
  • 1 quart chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cup whole or 2% milk
  • 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt to taste

Melt your butter in a large saucepan. Cook your onion in the butter until soft & translucent.

While the onions are cooking, chop your broccoli if using fresh.

Add in the garlic powder & pepper to the onions and allow to cook for an additional minute.

Stir in broccoli & chicken stock

Bring to a boil & allow to simmer until broccoli is tender. While the broccoli is cooking, whisk the flour & milk together.

Stir milk into the soup slowly to allow it to thicken.

Stir in cheese until melted.

Serve warm with bread sticks or bread bowls!

This soup completely classifies as comfort food!
