Soup Sunday: Broccoli Cheese Soup

February 13, 2011

Broccoli is probably my favorite vegetable. It can be cooked so many ways and it absorbs the flavors around it so well! You will probably see a lot of broccoli recipes popping up on here – because we use it all the time. I’m not kidding either, this weekend (no joke!) we went through 3 huge bunches of broccoli.

Anyways, speaking of broccoli… how could there be a better pair?

Broccoli and cheese – yum.

Lets get down to business here…

Broccoli Cheese Soup

1 large head of broccoli, chopped (peel tough exterior off the stem and chop that too!)
3 T olive oil
3 cloves garlic or 1 t garlic powder
½ onion or ½ t of onion powder
5 cups vegetable broth (or chicken if you are so inclined, I actually used 4 broth and 1 water)
3 cups milk
1/3 cup corn starch
8 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Put chopped broccoli, olive oil, onion and garlic in large stockpot and stir until broccoli begins to slightly brown. Add broth and bring to a simmer until broccoli is tender – about 5-7 minutes.

Whisk corn starch and milk together and add to broccoli. Return to a boil. Once soup has thickened, add shredded cheese and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy your dinner!

Don’t forget – we’d love to hear about your favorite soup recipe. Include your link in a comment and I will add it to this post. Thanks!
