Broccoli Cheddar Soup
Perfect Comfort Food
The cold weather will be upon us before we know it, make sure you have this easy recipe on hand! My recipe for broccoli cheddar soup can be made right on the stove top in about 15-20 minutes. I use to make it in the slow cooker because of course it was easy to throw all the ingredients right in and leave it.
One afternoon in the middle of winter hubby came in covered in snow, ice in his beard- after 3 hours of snow removal and was starving. He needed something hearty that would warm him up quick. There was no time for a slow cooker.
After a little chopping and mixing, he was enjoying a hot, creamy soup that was satisfying.
Here is how to make it:
(Full printable recipe below)
Melt butter in a pot over medium heat.
Add carrots and onion. Season with salt & pepper.
Sweat them out for about 2-3 minutes.

Stir in cheddar cheese. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Serve topped with cheddar cheese!
