Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 ¾ cups broccoli florets (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 ½ cup diced yellow onion
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup half-and-half
  • 4 ounces shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • Fresh parsley

Instructions:

Chop the broccoli florets and carrots, dice the onion and mince the garlic cloves. Pour the stock into a large saucepan and bring to a boil, adding the broccoli, onion, carrots, salt, pepper and garlic. Reduce heat and cook until broccoli is tender. Remove soup from heat and blend ingredients, either using a hand blender or by pouring batches of soup into a blender or food processor. Once fully blended, return soup to saucepan.
