Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb fresh broccoli cut into florets about 5 cups, or 13 oz of florets
  • 1/2 small yellow onion chopped
  • 2 large carrots peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup milk 2% - half and half
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • fresh parsley garnish

Instructions

  • Add broccoli, onion, carrot, garlic, salt, pepper, celery salt, and chicken stock to a Crock Pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs or on high for 3-4 hours.
  • Once done, use an immersion blender, blender, or Vitamix and blend soup until creamy. Return to Crock Pot on low.
  • In a small sauce pan on stovetop, heat butter over medium and sprinkle on flour. Whisk as butter melts to create a roux. Once all the butter is melted and flour incorporated, slowly add milk and whisk. Slowly add shredded cheese and whisk until well combined into a thick cheese sauce. Reserve 1/4-1/2 cup of cheese.
  • Add cheese sauce to soup and give a gentle mix. Add some of the reserved cheese and give another mix.
  • Serve in soup bowls and garnish with fresh parsley and some shredded cheese.
