DIRECTIONS

  • Chop broccoli into coarse chunks. You can use stems; just be sure to peel the tough outer layer.
  • Melt butter in a large sauce pan or dutch oven. Add the onion and saute about 5 minutes, until soft.
  • Add the flour and saute one minute longer mixing thoroughly with the butter and onions.
  • Add the chicken broth, broccoli, thyme and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Bring the heat down and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the broccoli is tender.
  • Puree the soup with an immersion blender (or in small batches in a food processor).
  • After pureeing, add the milk and bring the soup to a simmer.
  • Sprinkle half of the cheddar cheese into the soup and stir until smooth. Keep the heat on low to prevent curdling.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper and top with remaining shredded cheese.
