Deliciously-creamy, broccoli and cheddar soup from scratch! This recipe is “soup-er” easy!
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Drop the broccoli florets into the boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove the broccoli and place it into a large bowl of ice water. Once cooled, drain the broccoli and set aside.
Sauté the onions and carrots in two tablespoons of butter until soft but still firm. Remove and set aside.
Add the remaining 1/4 cup of melted butter to the pan. Add in the flour, stir constantly for 2-3 minutes. Slowly pour half-and-half and then the vegetable stock while still whisking. Add in nutmeg and stir. Cover and simmer (over medium-low) for 20 minutes.
Next, reduce heat to low and add in the onions, carrots and broccoli. Add more vegetable stock if you feel the soup is too thick. Stir and cover to simmer for another 20-25 minutes.
Lastly, use a potato masher to break up the broccoli florets to desired size. Add in half of the cheddar cheese. Season generously (to taste) with kosher salt and black pepper.
Serve immediately with remaining cheddar cheese.
