Broccoli Cheddar Soup

I adapted a recipe a little from one I found on and it turned out to be very yummy!

1/2 cup butter

1 small or 1/2 large onion, chopped

about 1 pound fresh broccoli florets, chopped

1 1/2 big containers of chicken broth

1 pound cheese (I used1/2 mild Wisconsin cheddar and 1/2 sharp Wisconsin cheddar)

1 cup 2% milk

1 cup whole milk

Garlic Powder to taste

2/3 cup corn starch

1 cup water

  1. In a stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter until softened. Stir in broccoli, and cover with chicken broth. Simmer until broccoli is tender, about 20  minutes. (You could use frozen broccoli, if you do that, it won’t need to cook for quite as long)
  2. Reduce heat, and stir in cheese cubes until melted. Mix in milk and garlic powder.
  3. In a small bowl, stir cornstarch into water until dissolved. Stir into soup; cook, stirring frequently, until thick.

About Hang Onto Your Fork

I am just a girl who loves to cook. I am happiest when friends and/ or family are sitting around my table enjoying a meal and sharing stories and laughter! I noticed myself spending a lot of time reading recipe sites, food blogs and cook books and finally decided to get in on the action! I am very much an amateur cook, and through the last couple of years have learned a lot through trial and error. So, I would like to invite you to join in my culinary triumphs and laugh at my kitchen disasters! I welcome any tips/ advice/ and comments that you may have!
