Broccoli Cheese Soup for a Freezing Day

Baby, it’s cold outside! Winter has finally arrived here in SC. After a December full of comfortable 60 degree weather {closer to 70 some days} and barely needing to wear jackets, we have a high of 37* and a low of 18* today. It’s cold and the wind is blowing!
The only great thing about this kind of weather? It’s soup time, baby! I love soup! Love, love, love it! I have several soups that I’ve Pinned that I can’t wait to try! But here is an oldie but goodie. Nothing like a nice bowl Broccoli Cheese Soup to warm you up.
As usual, I got the recipe from but made my own modifications.
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 (32-oz) carton chicken broth
  • 1 (1 pound) loaf processed cheese food, cubed
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • {Hey, I never said it was healthy, I just said it was delicious!}
Melt butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add chopped onion and garlic and saute until tender.
Add 2 Tbsp flour and stir to combine.
Cook, stirring frequently for about two minutes.
Add broccoli and the carton of broth. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until broccoli is tender.
Slowly add the milk and cheese, stirring well in between.
Cook on low for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until cheese is melted.
Serve with shredded cheddar and fresh croutons!
