As we prepare for the colder days, we are looking forward to one of our fall favorites: soup! While there are many different ways to prepare soup, we prefer a heartier, indulgent soup to brighten those long November nights.
Cozy up to a big bowl DairyGood.org’s Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup tonight. Perfection.
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup flour
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
4 cups fat-free milk
2 cups frozen broccoli, chopped
2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat, add onion and cook until tender.
Add flour; stir until blended. Gradually stir in broth. Heat until slightly thickened. Add milk, broccoli and potatoes.
Cook over low heat about 15 minutes or until broccoli and potatoes are tender. Stir in cheese and seasonings.
You can add extra veggies, different cheeses, garlic, green onions, sour cream or whatever you have handy. The options are limitless. Make it your own, but don’t forget to serve it topped with cheese!
