Creamy & cheesy Cheddar Broccoli soup will make your tummy happy on a chilly evening – and it takes just a few minutes to make!
You will also pour in 3 cups of milk and 1 cup of half & half.
Meanwhile, pulse most of a head of broccoli in a food processor. I like to leave out a few pieces of the broccoli to toss in as chunks for texture.
- 3 Tb butter
- ½ c red onion, diced
- 3 Tb flour
- 2 c beef broth
- 3 c milk
- 1 c half & half
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 head broccoli, pulsed in a food processor (save some small pieces for texture, optional)
- 3 - 4 cups cheddar cheese (grated or diced)
- In a Dutch oven, melt butter and saute’ onion over medium heat, until onions are tender. Add in flour, whisk and cook for a moment. Whisk in the broth, milk and half & half. Add salt & pepper. Bring the mixture up to a gentle boil. Add in the broccoli. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add in your cheese, stirring and cooking until completely melted. That’s it! Enjoy this easy, and delicious soup!
