Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, melt unsalted butter. Add chopped onions. Stir continuously until onions are tender and translucent.
  2. Add sifted all-purpose flour, salt and pepper. Whisk together until evenly combined.
  3. Turn heat OFF. Gradually add milk, heavy cream and chicken broth. Slowly bring to a boil over low-medium heat. Whisk together until thickened (about 2 minutes).
  4. Add broccoli. Stir until thoroughly heated.
  5. Remove from the heat. Add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Stir until melted.
  6. This soup is delicious immediately after preparation. However, for best results refrigerate 24 hours (not in freezer). After preparing, allow soup to cool. Place in a container. Seal with a lid or foil. Refrigerate 24 hours. Warm before serving.
  7. Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese on top of each serving. This step is optional.
