Let's Cook

Ingredients

4 servings
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • ¼ cups Flour, All-Purpose
  • 2 cups Half and Half
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth/Stock
  • ½ cups dice Onion
  • 1 ½ cups Broccoli Cuts, Frozen
  • 1 cup dice Carrot
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese, Shredded

Freezer Containers

  • 4 Quart Freezer Bags

Directions

In a large stock pan over medium heat, melt butter and add flour. Whisk together while it cooks for 3-4 minutes. Slowly stir in half and half and chicken stock, and continue to whisk together. Cook over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Once simmering, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. After simmering, add onion, broccoli, and carrots. Cook over low heat for another 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add salt, pepper, and cheese. As the cheese melts, make sure to stir well to combine. Once cheese has melted, add nutmeg and remove from heat. Soup will have vegetable chunks. If you prefer your soup smoother, use an immersion blender to get desired consistency.
