Delicious broccoli and cheese soup

Broccoli and cheese soup …creamy, delicious and ready to go in 30 minutes!

This recipe was inspired by a little bakery I visited in NYC. Their broccoli and cheese soup with bread bowls was my absolute favorite! I’ve tried making it and never seemed to have the ingredients right. I finally have the perfect recipe. This soup is rich, creamy and perfect for a cold winter day. Heck, I’d even eat this soup on a hot summer day. It is just that good! My whole family loved it. We cannot wait to make it again.

Delicious broccoli and cheese soup

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour

  1. In a large pan begin to melt butter over medium-low heat. Add minced garlic and let cook for about a minute. Whisk in flour and cook for a few minutes, just until golden brown.
  2. Slowly add in chicken stock, half-and-half, kosher salt, white pepper and nutmeg. Stir together and let cook for about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add in the broccoli and carrots and let simmer for another 20 minutes.

Serves 4-6 people.

I picked up the bread bowls at a local bakery, but I cannot wait to try and make my own someday!
