Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp butter (divided)
  • 3/4 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1 cup carrot (finely diced)
  • 4 cups small broccoli florets (cut into small pieces)
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 tbsp gluten free flour blend
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a large pot, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the onion to the pan and cook until tender and translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the carrots and cook 2-4 minutes.
  • Stir in broccoli, chicken broth, onion salt, and garlic powder.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the remaining butter. Add flour and cook for 1-2 until golden brown, whisking constantly so the flour does not burn.
  • Whisk in the milk and cook until the mixture thickens and bubbles, about 5 minutes. The mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Then, add in the cheese. Whisk mixture until the cheese has completely melted. Add cheese mixture to the pot with the broth in it.
  • Simmer until soup is warm and broccoli is tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
