Seeing as I’ve all ready typed this recipe out, I thought I’d better keep it in a safe place! This was probably one of the best soups I’ve ever made.
Broccoli Cheddar Soup
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup of flour
1 onion, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups of whole milk
2 cups of chicken stock
2 cups of shredded extra sharp cheddar
4 cups of broccoli florets, pulsed 12 times in a food processor
Salt and Pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper
Heat the butter over medium heat in a large pot. Add the onions and sautee until softened. Add the garlic, cayenne pepper and flour. Whisk constantly for about two minutes to cook the rawness out of the flour. Whisk in the chicken stock and milk until it begins to thicken. Add the chopped broccoli. Whisk in 1/2 a cup of cheese at a time until it melts smoothly into the soup.
