Who's ready for the arctic blast coming our way today? There is nothing like a cheesy bowl of comforting soup to take the chill off. Lately I have been craving nothing but carbs. Anyone else? I think it's because of the cold weather.
Fresh Broccoli Cheese Soup is one of Nolan's favorite soups, so I make it quite often. I try to make it a light lighter by using mostly broth instead of milk and cream. I added some croutons because lets face it I eat soup mainly as a dip for some crusty bread. My mom and I decided this soup is pretty much like eating an entire bowl of cheesy fondue. I'm not mad about it.
So the steps to make this Fresh Broccoli Cheese soup are pretty simple:
- Make a rue using flour and butter
- Add broth and milk and bring to a boil
- Toss in the broccoli and carrots
- Once the veggies are soft carefully blend them (I use an immersion blender)
- Add whatever cheese combo you like!
Notice on Step 4 I use an immersion blender to make the soup smooth. What is an immersion blender? It looks like a stick, and you can blend your soup right in the pot your cooking it in! I swear by mine (and they are surprisingly affordable)! Buy one for yourself here!Print
