this blog. I was excited to try it, seeing as how my 6 year old keeps telling me he is vegetarian and doesn't even like chicken! So, I LOVE finding soups that are full of good veggies and that he will eat! This one did not disappoint and we will for sure be making it often.
2 T butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrots
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 T minced garlic
4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped (I used about 8 small red potatoes with the skin on)
1 1/2 T flour
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup milk
2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
2 heaping cups shredded cheddar cheese
Melt butter in a large soup pot. Add the onions, carrots and celery and sauté over Medium heat until the veggies are tender. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or two. Add the broth and potatoes, bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. Mix flour with water and add to the soup. Simmer until the soup is slightly thickened. Add milk and broccoli and cook until the broccoli is just tender. Stir in the cheese until melted and then serve immediately.
