The BEST Broccoli Cheese Soup
I know that is a big claim, BUT this really is the BEST Broccoli Soup! My kids – even the picky one – loves this soup!
It comes together pretty quickly too!
Here is the recipe:
1 can chicken broth (13 oz – so a little less then 2 cups)
1 small onion, diced
1/3 c. flour
1/4 c. butter
Pepper to taste (I used about 1/2 teaspoon)
2 c. milk or half and half
1 1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 c. shredded swiss cheese
Steamed chopped cauliflower
Steamed chopped broccoli
Simmer chicken broth and chopped onion for 15-20 minutes in a covered small saucepan, until onions are soft. Heat milk in microwave for 1-2 minutes. In a separate medium-sized stockpot, melt butter then add flour and pepper. Cook together for a couple of minutes, then whisk in warmed milk. Stir and heat together on medium-high heat until soup starts to thicken. Next add chicken broth and continue to stir until well blended. Add cheeses and steamed broccoli. Serve immediately.
