Pinterest Post: Broccoli Cheddar Breadbowl Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 cups chicken stock or bouillon
  • 1/2 pound fresh broccoli
  • 1 cup carrots, julienned
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 8 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
Directions: 
  1. Saute onion in butter. Set aside. Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and slowly add the half-and-half (this is called making a roux). Add the chicken stock whisking all the time. Simmer for 20 minutes. 
  2. Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat until the veggies are tender for 20-25 minutes. Add salt and pepper. The soup should be thickened by now. Pour in batches into blender and puree. Return to pot over low heat and add the grated cheese; stir until well blended. Stir in the nutmeg and serve.
