How to Make Creamy Broccoli Soup


  • 1In a dutch oven, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add broccoli and boil 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • 2In the same kettle, melt butter. Add celery, carrots, onion and diced potatoes and saute until onion is tender. Stir in flour until well blended.
  • 3Add the broth and milk and bring to a boil. Boil one minute, stirring constantly.
  • 4Add cooked broccoli, parsley flakes, onion salt, garlic powder, and kosher salt.
  • 5Reduce 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.
