Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe

Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe


  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups of chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

  3. Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree the soup until it achieves a smooth consistency.
  4. Stir in the heavy cream and cheddar cheese until the cheese is fully melted.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
