Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. (450g) fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of nutmeg (optional)
  • Croutons or extra cheese for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a large pot, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pot and sauté until they are soft and fragrant.
  2. Add the fresh broccoli florets to the pot and stir everything together.
  3. Pour in the low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the broccoli simmer for about 15 minutes or until it becomes tender.
  4. Once the broccoli is cooked, use an immersion blender or transfer the mixture to a blender to puree until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids and work in batches if using a traditional blender.
  5. Return the pureed soup to the pot and stir in the whole milk, shredded cheddar cheese, and heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, add a pinch of nutmeg for an extra depth of flavor.
  6. Cook the soup on low heat, stirring occasionally, until the cheese has fully melted and the soup is heated through.
  7. Ladle the Creamy Broccoli and Cheese Soup into serving bowls and garnish with croutons or extra cheese if desired.
