Broccoli Cheddar Soup

This broccoli cheddar soup is thick and delicious. If you enjoy this soup when dining out, try making it at home!

Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings



  1. Melt butter in a heavy stock pot over medium heat.
  2. Add onions to butter and saute until tender.
  3. Mix in flour and cook until golden brown, stirring frequently.
  4. Gradually stir in half and half, stirring until smooth.
  5. Add chicken broth and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Bring to a simmer.
  6. Reduce heat to LOW and simmer uncovered until thickened. Approximately 20 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
  7. Once thickened, add broccoli (and carrot, if desired) to pot and simmer until tender. Approximately 20 minutes.
  8. Using a stick (immersion) blender, puree some the broccoli into the soup. You can leave behind a few pieces of broccoli or you can puree all of it. If you don't have a stick blender you can puree the soup in a regular blender and return it to the pot.
  9. Add the grated cheese, stir to combine.
  10. If the soup seems too thick you can add addition broth to thin it out a bit. Top with additionally grated cheese and serve. Enjoy!

This is one of my fave soups. It's a great way to get in veggies. You can change it by using low sodium broth. I sometimes add in chicken. I steam my broccoli in the microwave but will have to try this way.
