I made this for dinner tonight and it was so delicious. Creamy and not too thick, and tons of flavor. Recipe from Key Ingredient.

This was amazing! I can't wait to make it again, this batch did not last long at all. Like comment below mine, I also did not puree the veggies.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Saute onion in butter. Set aside. 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 stock whisking all the time. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat until the veggies are tender for 20-25 minutes. Add salt and pepper. The soup should be thickened by now. Pour in batches into blender and puree. Return to pot over low heat and add the grated cheese; stir until well blended. Stir in the nutmeg and serve.
