Triple Cheese Broccoli Soup
I experimented with this soup to get it to the right consistency and texture. I have it just right for my taste.
I recently served it for a luncheon and it got rave reviews!
So I declare it to be a "comfort" food even if it does have Broccoli in it.
1/2 cbutter (unsalted)
1 mediumyellow onion, finely chopped
16 ozpackage of frozen chopped brocolli
6 cchicken broth
2 cheavy cream
1 lbprocessed cheese ( i use velveeta) cubed
2 csharp cheddar cheese (grated)
1 pkg4 oz cream cheese, cubed
2 Tbspgarlic, finely chopped
How to Make Triple Cheese Broccoli Soup
- In a large stock pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add butter and garlic and saute until onions are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add cornstarch and blend with a whisk until smooth.
- Gradually stir in chicken broth. Stir in broccoli and simmer until broccoli is tender, about 30 minutes.
- Slowly stir in milk, cream and water, stirring constantly.
Bring to a slow boil.
- Add all the cheese and stir until thoroughly melted.
Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes before serving.
You can also put it in a slow cooker to melt cheese and to keep the soup warm until ready to serve.
