Broccoli Cheddar Soup

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.

  • Print

2 cups chicken broth (I use Knorr cubes)
2 cups chopped frozen broccoli
1 tbsp chopped carrots
1/2 cup half & half (I use light cream and unsweetened almond milk)
1/3 pkg of 8 oz cheddar cheese block (or any cheese)
1 tbsp fresh garlic
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp corn starch

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!
