Very good soup--you can make half but you will want leftovers! Serve with crusty bread or over baked potatoes.

"Best Broccoli Cheese Soup ever! Very creamy, and great flavor. I puréed using an immersion blender before adding the cheddar, and I skipped the cayenne because I liked the flavor without it. I will definitely make this again!"

Preparation

In your soup pot, saute onion and garlic in the 2 T butter. Remove the veggies and set aside.

In the same pot, melt the 1/2 c butter, then add flour, and cook, whisking constantly, over medium heat for 5 minutes. (In other words, make a roux).

Stirring or whisking constantly, slowly add the half & half.

Add the chicken broth and mix well.

Bring it all to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat 20 minutes.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

At this point, you can puree the soup, or mash it a bit with a handheld potato masher, or leave it as-is.

Return to heat and add cheese till melted.

Add cayenne.

Serve, and let people add Tabasco if they like.

Excellent soup. I did use fat free half & half however and it was just fine. Entire pot gone in one night!!!

Awesome recipe. I used a potato masher instead of a blender, it came out great. I just had to add a little more liquid at the end.

My husband begs for this one, and he can be very picky. I use a food processor to get it a little chunky but not too much. I puréed in a blender the first time & didn't care for the texture.

Easy to prepare, the carrots add depth of flavor. I used an immersion blender and partly puréed the soup. Served with garlic bread. A winner. Thanksnfornposting!
