I know there are a million ways to make broccoli cheddar soup and the list is endless but the devil is in the details. My best piece of advice is when it comes to making soup, is using my own home made stock. It seems like a daunting task but once you get the hang of it, you’ll never look back. Cooking your own stock is super simple and usually requires ingredients you already have on hand or typically discard so it’s really just about changing habits. That being said, it’s not a must but it really does elevate your dishes.

The best thing about this recipe is it’s only made of two parts, a Mornay and roasted veggies. This can come together in no time at all and freezes AMAZING. While you’re roasting your vegetables you can quickly get your mornay together, blend and you have a soup. I personally like to top mine with lots of fresh cracked black pepper, sour cream and a bit of olive oil as well to make it look pretty. If you are like me and happen to have Garlic Confit kicking around I highly suggest using that vs. the fresh garlic. Either way, let’s go!

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

A delicious oven roasted broccoli cheddar soup that has been around for ages. It's essentially a classic for a reason. Hearty but still light enough to have whenever you want. I like to make a bit batch and freeze for later.
