Ingredients

    2 tbsp Olive oil
    1 Bunch Fresh Broccoli, chopped
    1 can (6cups) Swanson Chicken Broth 99% Fat Free
    1 cup diced Carrots
    2 cups Onions, chopped
    2 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded (aged at least 2 years)
    3/4 cup Half and Half Cream
    1 Bay Leaf
    6 tsp Kosher Salt

Directions

Heat Olive oil in a large stock pot on medium heat. Add in onions and cook until transparent. Add in chopped carrots and broccoli and cook at med-high about 5 minutes stirring frequently. Add in chicken stock and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium low, cover and let simmer for about 15 minutes stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat and blend ingredients in a blender or with a hand held immersion blender. Be careful not to burn yourself on the hot liquids.

Add in salt and cheese and continue to blend until smooth.

Pour into bowls and add a bit of half n half right before serving and do a quick swirl with a spoon.

I also recommend topping this soup with croutons for a nice finish.
