Cheddar Cream of Broccoli Soup

You can make pretty much any cream of vegetable soup following this recipe by swapping the broccoli for your favourite vegetable.  The key is sautéing the vegetables first; it really brings the flavours of the vegetable to life.

  • 2 cups chopped raw broccoli
  • 3 tbsp butter (divided)
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 30 g cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt & pepper to taste

Preheat a saucepan over medium heat.  Melt 1 tbsp butter, and add broccoli, sautéing for 5 minutes until broccoli is par cooked.

Warm pan back up to medium heat and melt 2 tbsp butter.  Add 2 tbsp flour to create a roux.  Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring often.  Add milk, and bring to a boil.  Stir in broccoli and simmer for about 10 minutes.  

Stir in cheese and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, until soup is smooth.

Serve blended or with full pieces of broccoli.
