This is such a good idea for stew. I found this Delicious broccoli and cheese soup recipe at http://www.iheartnaptime.net/ and I love it. It is just that good! My whole family love it. We cannot wait to make it again. I hope you enjoy it :)
1/4 cup melted butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups half-and-half
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 cup steamed broccoli (cut into small pieces)
3/4 cup shredded carrots
2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
- In a large pan begin to melt butter over medium-low heat. Add minced garlic and let cook for about a minute. Whisk in flour and cook for a few minutes, just until golden brown.
- Slowly add in chicken stock, half-and-half, kosher salt, white pepper and nutmeg. Stir together and let cook for about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add in the broccoli and carrots and let simmer for another 20 minutes.
- Mix in cheese and stir until just combined. Serve in bread bowls or with rolls.
