How to Make Broccoli Cheese Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small saute pan, cook the onion and garlic in 1 T of the butter until soft (about 5 minutes). Set aside.
  2. In 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.
  3. Add 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.
  4. Add the cheese and stir until it is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. If desired, can puree a bit, but not necessary.
