Spicy Broccoli Cheese Soup – Healthy Vegetarian Weight Loss Food Dish Recipe

  1. In a small saucepan, add 1 tablespoon butter, onion, and sauté over medium heat until the onion is barely browned. Add the garlic and cook about 30 seconds. Remove from heat, set aside.
  2. In a large heavy-bottom pot, add 4 tablespoons butter, flour, and cook over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes, whisking constantly, until flour is thickened. Slowly add the vegetable stock, whisking constantly. Slowly add the half-and-half, whisking constantly. Allow mixture to simmer over low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. While mixture is simmering, chop the broccoli and carrots. After simmering 15 to 20 minutes, add the broccoli, carrots, and the onion and garlic you previously set aside. Add the salt, pepper, optional paprika, optional dry mustard powder, and optional cayenne. Stir to combine. Allow soup to simmer over low heat for about 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. While soup simmers, grate the cheese. [*It’s important to use a high-quality cheese (not the cheapest thing you can find) because the flavor of the soup depends on it. Do not use pre-grated cheese in ziptop bags because that cheese is resistant to melting and won’t incorporate well.]
  5. After simmering about 20 to 25 minutes, add most of the cheese, reserving a small amount for garnishing bowls. Stir in the cheese until melted and incorporated fully, less than 1 minute. Transfer soup to bowls, garnish with reserved cheese, and serve immediately.
