Recipe: Cheesy Broccoli Soup

A super simple way to make broccoli disappear in a matter of minutes. Creamy, rich, not all that good for you but delicious. I actually would use much less cheese and then taste and add as much as you need because I dumped it all in the first time and it was actually too cheesy I ended up putting in some stock to thin out the flavor.

Ingredients
  1. 1 whole onion
  2. 1 stick butter
  3. 1/3 cup flour
  4. 4 cups vegetable stock
  5. 2 cups half-and-half (or milk or cream, your choice)
  6. 4 heads broccoli (or 1 big bag of frozen broccoli, thawed)
  7. 1.5 to 3 cups cheese (any type, I used cheddar and pepper jack)
  8. 1 tsp nutmeg
  9. salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a pot over medium heat, then add the onions. Cook the onions for 3 to 4 minutes, then sprinkle the flour over the top. Once combined pour in stock and half-and-half. Add nutmeg, then add broccoli, some salt and pepper
  2. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender. Stir in cheese and allow to melt.
