HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BROCCOLI AND CHEDDAR SOUP
Step 1: Melt the butter in a stock-pot over medium-high heat.
Step 2: Saute the chopped onion for about 3 to 4 minutes or until translucent. Stir in the flour for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 3: Slowly pour in the half-and-half and stir well until incorporated.
Step 4: Then, add in the chicken broth. To taste, season with salt and pepper.
Step 5: Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes over medium-low heat or until thick.
Step 6: Add the carrot, celery, and broccoli into the pan and continue to simmer for 20 minutes more or until the vegetables are tender.
Step 7: Adjust the heat to low before adding in the Cheddar cheese. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Step 8: Once done, remove from the heat and serve immediately. Enjoy!
If the soup becomes too thick, add about 1/4 cup water.
