Best Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Soup Soothes Sore Throats

There is nothing like warm soup to soothe a sore throat. The family I work for and I have had terribly sore throats this week. But, we have a viral infection that antibiotics cannot treat so we only have hot fluids and rest to ease the suffering. I served the sick kids plenty of hot tea, hot cider, and chicken soup. But the best remedy was this broccoli cheddar soup I made for the kids that can be found at CDK Kitchen.

You Will Need:

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup flour
3 cups water
4 teaspoons instant chicken bouillon
2 packages (10 ounce size) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups half and half


In large saucepan, cook onion in butter until tender; stir in flour, and blend well. Gradually stir in water; add bouillon and broccoli. Cook and stir until thickened and broccoli is tender.

Stir in cheese and half and half. Cook and stir until cheese is melted and soup in heated through. Do not boil.
