This soup is unbelievably delicious!! I have yet to find another recipe for broccoli cheese soup that is better than this one! Give it a try!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Saute onion in butter. Set aside.
  2. Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and slowly add the half-and-half (this is called making a roux). Add the chicken broth whisking all the time. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat till veggies are tender for 20-25 minutes. Add salt and pepper. The soup should be thickened by now.
  4. Pour in batches into osterizer (blender) and puree.
  5. Return to pot over low heat and add the grated cheese; stir until well blended. Stir in the nutmeg.
  6. This soup can be easily doubled.

Nice and easy soup. Reminds me of panera's recipe. I made a few changes- using 1 qt chicken stock, 1 cup half and half, 2 cups milk, 1 lb broccoli but kept the carrot and cheese the same. I chopped the broccoli fine so I only put about 3 cups in the food processor and left the rest chunky. Thanks!

I was really disappointed in this recipe..you could stand a spoon up in it it was so thick...and it needed more broccoli and cheese...just bland..my son agreed. AND..I followed the instructions to a "T".

Great! This is the best broccoli cheese soup I've ever made. I will use this recipe from now on.
