Recipe: Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

Nobody, I mean nobody, loves soup more than my mom does. I'm positive that she could eat soup every single day and be perfectly content with that.


Not so much.

Mainly because most every single soup I want to try at a restaurant is chock full of onions. Gross.

But as I've started branching out and trying new things, my mom has started teaching me how to make my own soup at home and I've slowly started liking soup a little bit more. We tried out two new recipes the other weekend while she was in town and while both were delicious, the Broccoli Cheddar one we had was my favorite of the two.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

4 cups chicken broth
1 cup half & half
1 cup water
1/2 cup flour
1 cup of cheddar cheese {we used sharp}
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
3 tablespoons minced onion*
1 carrot {grated}
2 cups of chopped broccoli

*3 tablespoons minced onion = 1/2 onion

1. Whisk together chicken broth, half & half, water, flour, cheese, minced onion, salt, pepper, & carrot in a pot until it boils.
2. Add in broccoli.
3. Simmer for 20 minutes.
4. Enjoy!

This recipe was so easy to make! The most difficult part of the whole thing was chopping up the broccoli. We ended up chopping the broccoli too big but we fixed that by using a potato masher once the soup was complete. Just mash the soup around for a minute or so or until the broccoli is down to the size you prefer.

I'm all about recipes that can be made in the crock pot or take less than half an hour to make. I was planning on freezing the leftovers of this soup to save for a day I didn't feel like cooking... but we didn't exactly have any leftovers. It's safe to say I'll be making this one again soon.
