BROCCOLI CHEESE SOUP
Warm, cheesy, rich broccoli cheese soup made in less than 30 minutes that even the pickiest of eaters will go crazy for!
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 heads broccoli, cut into florets and finely chopped
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Melt butter in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and thyme, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, vegetable broth and heavy cream, and cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in broccoli.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until broccoli is tender, about 6-8 minutes.
Stir in cheeses, a handful at a time, until smooth, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
