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.
