    Broccoli Cheddar Soup

    Broccoli Cheddar Soup

    It’s that time of year where we all start bundling up as the weather starts to cool off and we prepare for winter. With the cool crisp of Fall in the air, there’s just nothing like coming home to a warm bowl of soup for dinner, with fresh hot rolls out of the oven! I find myself making more and more soups that nourish my family and soothe our souls after a long day at work/school.

    Broccoli Cheddar Soup

    Today, I wanted to share a family classic from my childhood: broccoli cheddar soup. I grew up eating this and it’s one of the very first soups I ever made for my own little family. It’s so simple and quick to make and I guarantee that even the pickiest of eaters will love it, regardless of whether or not they like broccoli.

    You can’t get much more simple than boiling all of the ingredients, pureeing them and then adding in the rue. I whipped this up the other day when a friend came over for lunch and it was so delicious that I wanted to share with you all!

    Ingredients
    1. 1 large potato, peeled and roughly chopped
    2. 2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
    3. 4 tsp chicken bouyon
    4. 1 onion, roughly chopped
    5. 3 cups broccoli, roughly chopped
    6. 3 cups water
    7. 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
    Sauce
    1. 1/2 cup butter
    2. 1/2 cup flour
    3. 1/2 tsp salt
    4. 4 cups milk (add slowly)
    Instructions
    1. Place all the ingredients, minus the cheddar cheese and the sauce, into a medium sized stock pot and bring to a boil. Cook for roughly 10-15 minutes, or until veggies are soft.
    2. Using a submersion blender, puree the veggies in the stockpot until a soup-like consistency is reached.
    3. While veggies are boiling, in a separate saucepan, prepare the sauce.
    4. Add in each ingredient and whisk until well combined, scraping down the sides and bottom.
    5. Once sauce is ready, add into the pureed veggies and mix well.
    6. Next, add in the cheddar cheese and stir until melted.
    7. Sprinkle some additional cheese when serving, if desired.
    8. Enjoy!
    Notes
    1. * If doubling the recipe, make sure to make the sauce TWICE, not just double in one pan

     I hope this soup ministers to your soul in the same way it does to mine! If you have some other veggies like celery and mushrooms, why not toss those in as well? Let me know how it turns out for you in the comments below!

    Mmmmm! I love broccoli and cheddar soup! I am definitely going to give this a try this fall. We kick of soups, stews and chili season on Halloween night. Makes for an easier time and the kids get warmed up after being out in the cold!

    My husband has a wheat allergy so I wanted to mention that this recipe is relatively easy to adapt to gluten free. Rather than subbing out the flour, I’ve found it works better to simply add one extra potato (since the recipe already calls for it, the flavor won’t be compromised), and then after blending simply add cheese and evaporated milk (it’s heavier and stands up better without flour) directly to the blended soup. Disclaimer: it will NOT be exactly the same, but this flavor combo just looks so yummy that I wanted to mention this in case any other readers have to change everything they cook due to allergies like I do 🙂

    This is seriously my favorite soup ever (aside from lobster bisque and clam chowder). I’d really love to know how to make it, but 1. I’m a horrible cook and 2. I hate cooking haha but I think I’ll attempt this sometime (with assistance of course).
