Heavenly Broccoli & Cheese Soup

I made some homemade Broccoli & Cheese Soup this morning and I must say, it was HEAVENLY!! :o)

Below is the recipe so enjoy!

4 servings (I doubled my recipe)


1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 medium onion ~ chopped
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half-and-half cream
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 lb fresh broccoli
2 cloves of garlic
1 cup carrots, julienned
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper


1) Saute inion in 1 tablespoon butter. Set Aside.

2) Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and add the half-and-half

3) Add the chicken stock. Simmer for 20 minutes.

4) Add the broccoli, carrots, garlic, and onions. Cook over low heat for 20-25 minutes.

5) Add salt and pepper. Can be pureed in a blender but I like the chunkier broccoli. Return to heat and add cheese. Stir in nutmeg.
