Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Submitted by: KTDID_310

Introduction

my first attempt to reproduce panera bread's broccoli chedder soup. Not exact, but very good.
Might also try a sprinkle of fresh grated nutmeg in it next time-- let me know if you try that out.

Directions

This is mostly a dump and stir recipe.
To make it easy on yourself, go ahead and chop/grate ingredients first. Using a large pot, on med saute onions until translucent then add garlic and saute for 1 min. Add butter to melt, then drop heat to low and whisk in flour. Stir constantly/whisk for 2 min to cook out raw flour flavor. Add milk and chicken broth and pepper. Turn heat up and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and to med-low and simmer for 10 minutes.
While simmering, go ahead a steam broccoli for 2 minutes in a separate pot for 2 minutes, just until tender and set aside.
Back to main pot, slowly add in both cheeses, stirring until completely melted. Add carrots then broccoli. Cook 5-7 more minutes and try to keep your fingers out. :) Enjoy.

    This sounds delicious and I love cream of broccoli soup. I have most of the ingredients but I have to get the velvetta and fresh broccoli. Can't wait to try and keep my fingers out of it, how about a spoon.
