How to Make Broccoli Cheese Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a small saute pan, cook the onion and garlic in 1 T of the butter until soft (about 5 minutes). Set aside.
  • 2In a large stock pot, make a roux with the flour and remaining 3 T of butter. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the stock and half-n-half, and simmer, stirring often, for about 20 minutes.
  • 3Add the broccoli (can still be frozen, and once it softens up you can break it up a bit), onion/garlic mixture, and nutmeg. Simmer about 25 minutes, stirring often, until thick.
  • 4Add the cheese and stir until it is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. If desired, can puree a bit, but not necessary.
