Cheesy broccoli cheddar

You’ll need:

1 pack broccoli heads (4 cups uncooked heads)

4 cups sharp cheddar shredded (2 lbs)

2 cups heavy cream (for low car) or…

2 cups half & half (for lower cal)

2 cups chicken stock

1/2 yellow onion diced (1/2 cup)

2 cups shredded carrots

(If you want to thicken you’ll need 4 tbsp flour) do not add if your doing low carb.

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tbsp butter

In pot add butter and sauté chopped onion. (If you want a thicker soup add flour at this point, mix into butter to make rue. Then add chicken stock, broccoli and carrots, bring to a rapid boil for 5 minutes. Then add in cream and continue to boil but on a low boil for another 5-7 minutes. (You want to add cream after stock because if you bring to, to high of a boil it can cause it to break resulting in small clumps and making it a grainy texture.)

Then add in cheese last 3 1/2 cups save 1/2 cup for topping when serving! Stir until melted. That’s it. Put into bowl top with more cheese and enjoy!! Quick soup the kids will love!! ?
