Broccoli Cheddar Soup



In the Western hemisphere, autumn is here! I enjoyed this soup today for lunch on this fine October day. The leaves are just starting to change here in Chicagoland. Enjoy!

3 ½ cups chicken broth

6 cups chopped broccoli

½ cup chopped green onion

3 ½ cup milk

½ cup flour

6 oz. cubed sharp cheddar cheese

1 tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper


Heat the broth to a boil in a 3-4 qt. pot. Add the broccoli and onion, bring back to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Whisk the milk and the flour together, and add to the broccoli mixture. Turn the soup down to medium heat and stir for 5-8 minutes until it starts to bubble and thicken. Add the cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Once the cheese is melted, the soup is ready to enjoy!


Makes about 8-10 cups.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
