Top-ranked recipe named "Barb's Broccoli Cheese Soup"
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!"- katieewingray
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.
Serve, and let people add Tabasco if they like.

Nnardi 1 year agoExcellent soup. I did use fat free half & half however and it was just fine. Entire pot gone in one night!!!
Mara99 1 year agoAwesome 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.
Masterharper2 2 years agoMy 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.
