Directions

  1. Chop onion, carrot, celery, garlic in a chopper or mini food processor.
  2. In a large soup pot, melt butter. Add chopped vegetables and sauté on low heat until soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add flour, salt and pepper to the pot and stir until smooth.
  4. Add chicken broth, milk and potatoes and set heat to high until it comes to a boil, then cover and cook on low until potatoes are soft, about 10-15 minutes.
  5. Add broccoli florets, parmesan cheese, and stir well. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Cook uncovered until broccoli is cooked, about 5 minutes. Add cheddar and American cheese, stir well and remove from heat.
  6. Using an immersion blender, quickly blend part of the soup for a quick second or two. If you don't have an immersion blender, remove about 1-2 cups of potatoes and broccoli, place it in your chopper, then add it back to the soup. This helps thicken it a bit.

This soup is GREAT! I doubled this and didn't cut the broccoli because I was too tired and lazy, but followed everything else exactly. This soup was so comforting after a long, long day of working. Thanks for a definite keep CaliforniaJan. Made for Photo Tag Spring 2013.
