HOW TO MAKE Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Place butter in a stockpot or dutch oven over medium heat.

Once butter is hot and melted, add the onion and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the shredded carrots and broccoli and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until broccoli is wilted and softened.

Sprinkle in flour and stir to coat the vegetables in the flour.

 Add broth, followed by the seasonings and cheeses. Stir to combine and then let simmer until cheese is melted, stirring occasionally.

Add heavy whipping cream and stir to combine. Allow the soup to simmer and thicken for 3-5 minutes.

If desired, remove some of the vegetables to a blender and puree. Be careful not to trap heat in the blender – my method is to remove the air plug at the top and place a kitchen towel over it before blending at the lowest setting.
