Broccoli Cheese Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp. canola or corn oil
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves medium garlic, minced
  • 4 cups broccoli florets (chopped
  • 2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. red hot-pepper sauce (optional)
  • 1 pinch salt (or 1/16 tsp.)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 2 oz. cheddar cheese (sliced or shredded)
  • 2 Tbsp. Parmesan (shredded or grated)

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the bottom.
  2. Cook the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion is almost soft, stirring frequently.
  3. Stir in the broccoli, broth, mustard, pepper, hot-pepper sauce, and salt. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a simmer.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender, stirring occasionally.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk and flour. Stir into the soup. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened, stirring occasionally.
  6. Stir in the half-and-half, cheddar, and Parmesan. Cook over medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheeses have melted, stirring occasionally.
