Recipe Ingredients for Broccoli Cheddar Soup

1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/5 cup melted butter
1/5 cup flour
2 cups 1% milk
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1/2 pound fresh broccoli
1 cup carrots, julienned
1 salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
4 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 oz Low Fat, Cheddar Or Colby Cheese

Recipe Directions for Broccoli Cheddar Soup

  1. Saute onion in butter. Set aside. Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and slowly add the half-and-half (this is called making a roux). Add the chicken stock whisking all the time. Simmer for 20 minutes.

  2. Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat until the veggies are tender for 20-25 minutes. Add salt and pepper. The soup should be thickened by now. Pour in batches into blender and puree. Return to pot over low heat and add the grated cheese; stir until well blended. Stir in the nutmeg and serve.
