Homemade Broccoli Cheddar Soup is super easy to make. When it gets cold outside, even if it snows, you’re going to have a nice warm bowl of soup to soothe the cold away.
1 cup diced Carrots
1/2 of a medium Onion, diced
1 – bag of frozen Broccoli (16oz)
4 Tablespoons of Butter
1/4 cup Flour (Self-Rising or All-Purpose)
1 can Evaporated Milk (12oz)
1 carton Chicken Stock or Broth (32oz)
8oz of grated Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Prepare the vegetables first.
Dice the carrots.
Dice the onions.
Chop the broccoli into bite sized pieces.
Place large sauce pot over Medium heat on stove top.
Add the butter. Let melt.
Add the onions. Cook until tender and slightly translucent, stirring often.
Add the flour. Stir constantly, let cook 2 minutes.
Gradually add the evaporated milk, stirring constantly.
Gradually add the chicken stock.
Add the diced carrots.
Add the chopped broccoli.
Bring to a slight boil. REDUCE heat to Medium-Low and simmer for 20 minutes.
Taste to see if you need to add salt or pepper.
TURN OFF the heat. Let soup cool for 5 minutes.
Gradually stir in the grated cheese.
Serve while warm.
Chicken stock or chicken broth will work about the same. I always suggest that you grate your own cheese for best results instead of using the pre-shredded cheese from the grocer. Add salt and pepper to taste if desired.
