Watcha Cookin’

Or Watcha Eatin’ in my case. My friend made a big batch of this soup and brought me some. OMG it is soo good.

Panera Copycat Broccoli Cheddar Soup

My friend doubled the recipe and added a block of cream cheese and some milk.

1 tbsp butter

1/2 medium onion chopped

2 bunches broccoli cut into small florets

2 carrots julienned (1 cup)

1/4 cup of flour

1/4 cup of butter

2 cups half n half

2 cups chicken stock

8 oz sharp cheddar shredded

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Salt & Pepper to taste

Sautee onions in 1 tbsp of butter until transparent. In a separate pot make a roux with 1/4 c butter & flour cooking approximately 5 minutes over medium heat. Slowly add in half n half and continue stirring. Add in chicken stock and stir and let simmer for 20 minutes. Then add in broccoli, carrots and sautéed onions and let cook 25 minutes over low heat. Stir in cheese until melted (I guess this is where my friend added a block of cream cheese to the doubled recipe so 1/2 a block if you don’t double it). Then add nutmeg and salt & pepper to taste. (Not sure when she added extra milk??)
