Pure creamy comfort Broccoli Cheese Soup with potatoes and carrots. This soup is one of our favorites on a cold night.
In a large heavy bottom pot add the stick of butter and the onions. Cook on medium heat until the butter melts and the onions become translucent. Add in the minced garlic and cook just until the garlic is fragrant.
Add in the flour and stir with the butter, onion and garlic. Stir constantly until the flour blends smooth into the butter to make a roux.
Add in the carrots, broccoli, potatoes and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Add in the salt, pepper and seasonings along with the grated cheese. Continue to stir with a rubber spatula and scrap the bottom of the pot to keep anything from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Soup is ready when the potatoes are fork tender.
Soup will keep in an airtight container up to 1 week.
