Broccoli & Cheese Soup



Broccoli & Cheese Soup

¼ white onion chopped
1 rib celery chopped
2 TBSN butter or oil
2 TBSN flour
½ tsp. garlic salt
¼ tsp. pepper (or to taste)
½ cup chicken broth
1 ¼ cup milk
1 cup chopped broccoli, cooked crisp tender
½ - 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Saute onion and celery in saucepan over medium heat until tender.  Add flour, salt and pepper, cooking and stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly.  Add broth and milk all at once, stirring consistently until mixture comes to a boil and begins to thicken.  Add cooked broccoli, stirring until all is heated through.  Add cheese and mix until melted and smooth.

Enjoy with crusty bread or as a side with a sandwich.

If you've eaten the broccoli and cheese soup at Panera, this is very similar.  One of my favorites!!

  1. Hi Aj,

    Mmm, soup on a cold day sounds nice. I already grabbed a sweater and heated up some more orange zinger tea.

    Fun for me to browse your post below too about the waves...

    Thanks for stopping by my post "Who Doesn't Want More Joy and Energy?" It's fun, isn't it? So humbling, yet so exciting to be able to share some of God's heart on issues. Keep speaking! It feels like worship for me, when my heart is right, and it's all directed at him.

    How is your week going so far?

  2. I love Broccoli Cheese soup. Sadly, no one else would like it in my super picky family. What is wrong with people?!
