Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Charles made me some soup this evening with the bit of broccoli I had left in the fridge.  Quite tasty, I liked the way it came out; he added a bit of sour cream and thyme which added a different twist and of course our homemade chicken stock always sets any soup off!

  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 cup chopped fresh broccoli
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Tbs sour cream
  • 2/3 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste and a dash or two of cayenne if desired

Melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat; saute onion for 2 – 3 minutes.  Add broccoli and garlic and continue cooking about 3 more minutes.  Add flour, stir until no lumps remain, cook for about 2 minutes to incorporate.  Add chicken stock and milk.  Heat to a simmer.  Add sour cream and stir in cheese a little at a time until melted.  Season with thyme, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
