Vegetarian Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Most broccoli cheddar soups contain chicken broth, but luckily that is no longer an issue with this Panera dupe!

Prep
Cook
Serves 8people
Ingredients
5
tbs Salted butter
1
cup White onion, diced
2
cloves Garlic, finely minced
1/4
tsp Dried thyme
1/3
cup All purpose flour
2
cups Vegetable broth
1/4
tsp Nutmeg
2
Bay leaves
2 1/2
cups Milk
3/4
cup Half and half
3 1/2
cups Chopped, fresh broccoli pieces
2
Carrots, grated
2
cups Freshly grated cheddar cheese
3
tbs Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Salt and pepper to taste
Directions
1.
Melt the butter in a medium dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté for 7 minutes or until the onions start to turn translucent. Add the garlic and thyme and continue to cook for 1 minute.
2.
Add the flour and continue to cook for another minute, stirring constantly. Whisk in the broth, nutmeg, bay leaves, milk, and half and half. Cook stirring frequently until the mixture just begin to bubble, about 6-9 minutes.
3.
Add the broccoli pieces along with the grated carrots. Allow the broccoli to get slightly tender, about 6-8 minutes. Turn the heat off, remove pot from stove, add in the cheddar and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm with crusty French bread.
