Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 onion diced
- 6-8 medium potatoes peeled and cubed (russet or gold)
- 1 carrot grated
- 1 cup chopped broccoli
- 1 pint half and half cream
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Combine chicken broth, onion, potatoes, carrots and broccoli in a large stock pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until the potatoes are fork tender (about 10minutes depending on how large the chunks are).
Add the half and half.
In a small bowl, melt the butter and add the flour, whisking until smooth. Add to the soup along with the cheese. Mix well and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes before serving.
