How to Make Creamy Broccoli Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. In a dutch oven, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add broccoli and boil 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. In the same kettle, melt butter. Add celery, carrots, onion and diced potatoes and saute until onion is tender. Stir in flour until well blended.
  3. Add the broth and milk and bring to a boil. Boil one minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Add cooked broccoli, parsley flakes, onion salt, garlic powder, and kosher salt.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 40 to 50 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. If you want the soup a little thicker, at this point you can add some instant potato flakes until soup is desired consistency. Sprinkle each serving with shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
