Nothing like a hot bowl of soup to warm you up during those cold winter days. Instead of going to Panera Bread all the time to  have this soup , I decided to make it at home . I found  a similar recipe online and added my touch to it. Sooo yummy

Broccoli and cheese soup:

1 tablespoon melted butter + 1 tablespoon of butter

1/4 cup of flour

1 cup of milk

1 cup of heavy cream

2 cups of chicken stock

chopped broccoli

carrots sliced

1/2 medium

chopped onion

1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese

In a medium sauce pan add add 4 tablespoons of butter on medium heat , add the flour and mix with a whisk and cook for 2 minutes . Add the milk and cream and chicken stock bring to a simmer for about 20 minutes. Add the broccoli and carrots , in a separate small pan add 1 tablespoon of butter once the butter has melted add the onions and cook until the onions are translucent . Add the onions to the soup and mix . Add the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste, cook it for 20 minutes .Add the cheese and mix well . Serve 🙂
