Broccoli Cheddar Soup

It’s SOUP SEASON y’all, and since I’m quarantined, I’ve been cooking for the fam. Yesterday’s lunch/dinner was this easy peasy broccoli cheddar soup.

I thought for the longest time that I had this recipe up on my website, but discovered I only have pretty pics. I’m changing that today – selfishly, so I can reference it later – but also so in case anyone else is looking for an easy recipe.

1-2 onions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
2 large carrots, grated
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
3 tbsp salted butter
2 cups whole milk
4 cups veggie stock
1/2 cup flour
1-2 tsps mustard
salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot, melt the butter completely, then add onions and cook for about 3 mins, or until they begin to become translucent, then add the garlic.
  2. Add the flour and stir until it’s completely incorporated. Slowly pour the veggie stock while continuing to stir the onions to ensure no clumps. You may want to use a whisk here.
  3. Add the celery, carrots, and broccoli, mix, then cover and cook for 15 mins on medium heat.
  4. Add the milk, S&P, and mustard, and simmer on low heat for 5-10 mins.
  5. Add the cheddar cheese, stir until it’s incorporated and you’re done!
