Soup season is here! With back to school coming next week along with the cooler temperatures, I felt like having something warm, filling and comforting with the rotisserie chicken I had picked up for dinner the day before. So I dug up my immersion blender and began putting together ingredients to make broccoli and cheddar soup.
What’s your go to healthy comfort food?
Broccoli Cheddar Soup
In a sauce pan brown the garlic and mix the carrots in the butter. Add cornstarch to make a rue. Stir in the half & half and continue mixing until it thickens. Add the chicken broth and stir in the broccoli until heated. Use immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Finally add pieces of cheese and stir until melted. Enjoy!
