Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

So rich and creamy…perfect soup for a cold fall evening!

 

Ingredients:

3 cups of broccoli florets

4 cups of chicken broth

1 cup half and half

1/2 cup all purpose flour

12 slices of Kraft Sharp Cheddar slices

1/2 cup diced onions

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

 

Chop broccoli into small pieces and steam for about 6 minutes.

While broccoli is steaming, pour the chicken broth and the half and half into a large soup pan.  Bring to a boil.

Once the mixture is boiling, slowly add the flour, whisking to combine.

Once combined, bring the mixture down to a simmer.  Chop up the onion and the broccoli and add into the mixture.

Mix well with the salt and pepper.  Then add the cheddar cheese slices.  Return to a boil and then lower the heat, allowing the cheese to melt.  Allow to cook on LOW for about 20 minutes to make sure the onion is tender and the cheese has thoroughly melted.

Serve with some crushed crackers as a topping or a slice of warm bread!

The leftovers can be stored in freezer safe plastic containers for dinner another evening!
