This easy-to-make Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe is jam-packed with flavor  and is the perfect soup to serve to family and friends during the fall  and winter months.

You will be blown away at how tasty and simple to prepare this is. We are a soup family and make and eat it at least 2 times a week during the winter.


– unsalted butter – yellow onion – garlic – leeks, rinsed – all-purpose flour

Add  the butter to a large pot over medium heat. Once melted, add in the  onions, garlic, and leeks and cook until lightly browned and  translucent, which takes about 8 to 10 minutes.

Next, stir in the flour until combined in to make a roux. Add in the broccoli and chicken stock and bring to a boil and cook the broccoli just until al dente, or slightly crunchy.

Using a hand blender pulse the soup until it becomes slightly chunky or until the desired chunkiness or smoothness is achieved.

At this point ensure the soup is thick. If it’s not, you may need to make a separate roux or slurry and whisk it in. Pour in the heavy cream and stir in in to combine over low heat.

Mix in the cheddar cheese until combined and melted in. Finish by seasoning with sea salt, pepper, Worcestershire, and Tabasco sauce.
