Ingredients

  • 1

    onion, diced

  • 4

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 1

    tablespoon butter

  • 3

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 4

    cup chicken broth (or vegetable broth)

  • 4

    cups low fat milk

  • 12

    ounces of small fresh broccoli florets (about 5 cups)

  • 1

    teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 1/2

    cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions

1.Place a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the butter, onions, and garlic. Saute for 3-4 minutes to soften. Then add the flour and stir well so that the flour coats the onion pieces. 2.Pour in the broth and low fat milk. Then stir in the broccoli florets, sea salt, cayenne pepper, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the largest broccoli florets are tender. 3.Finally stir in the shredded cheese. Stir to thicken the soup as the cheese melts. Then turn off the heat and serve.
