broccoli cheddar soup

this soup is great for fall! it's hearty and warm and great for chilly nights! i love this version because it is full of chunky broccoli, which gives it fantastic texture! try this paired with some fresh bread from blue dog bakery! heaven!

serves 8

4 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese

4 cups whole milk

2 cups half and half

1 cup vegetable broth

½ cup flour

8 tablespoons butter

sprinkle flour over the onions and cook until lightly browned

remove from heat and stir in the milk, half and half and vegetable stock

cook over medium stirring frequently

let broccoli cook until tender, about 20 minutes

add in cheese and stir until cheese is melted
