Make this easy broccoli cheese soup recipe in just minutes! I love to serve it alongside crusty bread or a nice, warm sandwich. Try it, you'll love it!
1/4cupall purpose flour
2cupschicken brothsubstitute vegetable broth to make it vegetarian
4cupsbroccoli floretsfresh or frozen
8ouncespasteurized process cheddar cheese
In a 3 quart or larger pot, melt the butter with the flour on medium heat. Reduce heat slightly so that the butter and flour mixture bubbles gently. Whisk and cook for about 4 minutes.
Add the half-and-half a little at a time, whisking after each addition until smooth. Once all the half-and-half has been added and the resulting liquid is smooth and warm, add the broth and whisk together. Add a pinch each of salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes to thicken.
Add the broccoli florets and bring to a gentle simmer again. Let simmer uncovered another 20 minutes in order to cook the broccoli.
When the broccoli is tender, use a potato masher to mash the broccoli into smaller pieces. Once the soup is at the consistency you like, remove the pot from the heat, and then add the cheese a little at a time, stirring until smooth.
