I don’t know about you, but I could pretty much survive only on soup during the cold months of winter. There is just something warm and soothing about a steamy bowl of soup that makes it the ultimate comfort food for me. One of my very favorites is homemade broccoli cheese soup. I like it because the broccoli makes it healthy and the cheese makes it delicious!

I found this super quick video by Tip Hero that shows you exactly how to make the perfect pot of broccoli cheese soup:


Recipe: Broccoli Cheese Soup


5 Tbls butter

1 cup chopped onion

1/2 chopped carrots

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 cup flour

2 cups half and half

2 cups chicken broth

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

8 oz of frozen chopped broccoli, thawed


Over high heat, melt 1 Tbls of the butter.

Add onion, carrots and garlic, cook until tender, set aside

Over medium heat, melt 4 Tbls butter

Stir in 1/4 cup of flour, mix well

Slowly add half and half

Add chicken broth, let simmer 10 – 15 minutes.

Add cheese by the handful while stirring.

After cheese is completely melted, add onion mixture and broccoli, cook 5 minutes.

Serve it up in a bread bowl and if you really want to make it special, add a side of bacon.
