Creamy & cheesy Cheddar Broccoli Soup will make your tummy happy on a chilly evening – and it takes just a few minutes to make!
To begin, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat.
Sauté 1/2 cup of diced red onion in the butter until tender and slightly golden.
Stir in 3 tablespoons of flour.
Add in 2 cups of beef broth.
You will also pour in 3 cups of milk and 1 cup of half & half.
Stir it together and let this cook for a few minutes until it begins to bubble. Stir occasionally.
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.
When it is nice and thick and hot, stir in a teaspoon each of salt & pepper.
Add in your broccoli. Let this cook for about 5 minutes or until just done.
Add in 2 to 3 cups of cheddar cheese – depending on how cheesy you want your soup. Grate it or cut it into chunks, and add it to the pot. Stir until melted.
