How to Make Cheddar Broccoli Soup

To begin, cut the florets from the head, breaking or cutting them into bite-sized pieces. Set aside for now.

Cook these over medium heat, until the onion is tender, but not browned.

Add in all-purpose flour, and whisk. Let this cook for 1 minute.

Add beef broth, and whisk briefly.

Enjoy!

Serve this soup with some nice, crusty bread to sop up all that cheesy goodness.
