RICH AND CREAMY BROCCOLI CHEESE SOUP

Hello, cool crisp weather!  One of the first things I do when the weather cools down is to pull out my stash of yummy soup recipes and whip up a batch to warm our bones.  It’s literally been in the 40’s here in Florida and I’m not complaining at all!  In fact, I’m celebrating this evening with some creamy broccoli cheese soup that is to die for and I can’t wait to share the recipe with you!

So this little guy may not look like much but he packs a mean punch of goodies to keep you full after the meal!  I stuff this soup full of broccoli, carrots, and a little onion for some extra veggie meat to grab ahold of all of its cheesy layers.  Ok ok so I’ll stop beating around the bush now, the recipe is as follows.

RICH AND CREAMY BROCCOLI AND CHEDDAR SOUP

Ingredients

  • 3 CUPS FRESH BROCCOLI FLORETS
  • 1/2 SMALL TO MEDIUM ONION
  • 1 CUP SHREDDED CARROTS
  • 2 CUPS CHICKEN OR VEGGIE STOCK
  • 1/4 CUPS FLOUR
  • 5 TBSP UNSALTED BUTTER
  • 8 0Z SHREDDED SHARP CHEDDAR
  • 2 CUPS HALF AND HALF
  • 1/2 TSP GARLIC POWDER
  • SALT AND PEPPER TO YOUR LIKING

Instructions

  1. CHOP AND READY ALL VEGETABLES FOR THE SOUP.

    MELT BUTTER IN A MEDIUM SAUCEPAN OVER MEDIUM HEAT. ADD ONIONS AND STIR FREQUENTLY UNTIL SOFT.

    ADD FLOUR AND WHISK CONSTANTLY FOR A FEW MINUTES UNTIL IT HAS TURNED A GOLDEN COLOR (THIS IS CALLED MAKING A ROUX). SLOWLY WHISK IN HALF AND HALF AND CONTINUE TO WHISK UNTIL IT HAS BEEN INCORPORATED WITH THE ROUX.

    ADD IN STOCK AND BROCCOLI AND CARROTS. BRINK TO A BOIL, THEN REDUCE THE HEAT TO ALLOW VEGGIES TO COOK. ONCE THE VEGGIES ARE TENDER, STIR IN CHEESE AND SEASON WITH SALT, PEPPER, AND GARLIC POWDER.

    * FOR SERVING: ADD EXTRA CHEESE AND OYSTER CRACKERS.

 And that’s about it!  I hope you liked this recipe and it warmed you up this winter!  Let me know if you’ve tried this or if you have a favorite soup recipe for this time of year in the comments!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • All starry eyed over here 🤩 with this constellation print from @hello_strellas and how much it means to us! I was so excited to have our exact constellation of the day and time we got married almost 10 years ago arrive yesterday. 
It’s been such a wonderful reminder of where we started out as a new married couple and where we are now. Looking back on how much we’ve been able to accomplish together and how much our relationship has blossomed has made me realize how excited I am for our future together and all the adventures we have ahead of us! 
If you’re looking for a last minute Valentine’s gift for your special someone, this is hands down the most thoughtful gift out there! ✨

  • Road trippin to happiness or maybe just to my parents for a home cooked meal 😉 moral of the story here is to do what makes you happy! ❤️
  • Weekend Mood = SLOW DOWN! ⚠️ After a week of going 100 miles an hour, I think it’s time we slow down.... Have you heard of the art of slow living? February is the perfect time of year to start practicing. 1.| Take 5 minutes to enjoy your coffee or tea in the mornings instead of rushing to get out the door. 2.| Take time to organize your life so you have time to be present and enjoy the things you love. 3.| Take walks and reconnect with nature. This is a really great way to clear your head or find inspiration. 4.| Instead of turning the tv on right when you get home, turn on some music and allow yourself to decompress from the day. 5.| Don’t over-plan your day. That will only create stress and overwhelm. Learn to be flexible, give yourself a few of the most important tasks so that when they are complete you can treat yourself and enjoy the rest of your day doing something that will spark joy. 
Hope you found this helpful friends! Happy Friday! ❤️
