Broccoli Cheese Soup

This creamy soup whips up in mere minutes and tastes 10x better than Panera's broccoli cheese soup! A perfect lunchtime soup with fresh bread.
Yield 4 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place butter, onion and garlic in a medium saucepan. Saute over medium-high heat until butter is melted and mixture is fragrant.
  2. Quickly whisk in flour until smooth, then whisk in broth and milk until evenly incorporated. Stir in shredded carrots and chopped broccoli.
  3. Bring soup to a low simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender.
  4. Remove soup from heat and stir in cheese until melted. Stir in nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
