  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the soup:

  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 2 medium carrots (diced)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of dry white wine (optional)
  • 3 1/2 cups of low-sodium chicken stock

How to Make Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Step 1:

Place a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add butter, onions, and carrots and saute for about 5 to 7 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant for about 1 minute.

Step 2:

Add the wine and let it come to a boil for 1 minute while scraping the bottom of the pot to remove brown bits. Lower the heat and add the flour. Cook for a minute until it turns golden.

Step 3:

Pour the low-sodium chicken stock and the broccoli. Bring it to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to simmer. Let it simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes until the broccoli is very soft.

Step 5:

Stir in the cream, cheddar cheese, and nutmeg. Simmer for about 3 minutes. Make a taste test and adjust the salt and pepper if needed. If it’s too thick, you can thin it with a bit of water or chicken stock.

Step 6:

This step is optional. For the burnt broccoli. Preheat your oven to 425F and set the rack to the second lowest level of the oven. Add the chopped broccoli to a bowl and toss with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. Turn the broccoli halfway through.

Step 7:

Serve the soup in regular bowls or bread bowls. Garnish with burnt broccoli and enjoy.
