Grilled Cheesy Garlic Potatoes

Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Soup is a comforting and creamy dish that’s perfect for chilly days or whenever you’re craving a bowl of hearty goodness. This soup combines the wholesome flavors of broccoli and cauliflower with a rich, cheesy broth, making it a delicious and nutritious meal for the whole family.

To make this delightful soup, start by preparing your vegetables. Chop one head each of broccoli and cauliflower into small florets, and dice one onion and a couple of cloves of garlic.

In a large pot, melt a couple of tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook until it’s soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Then, add the minced garlic and cook for another minute, until fragrant.

Next, sprinkle a few tablespoons of all-purpose flour over the onions and garlic, stirring constantly to create a roux. This will help thicken the soup. Cook the flour mixture for about 2 minutes, ensuring it doesn’t brown.

Gradually whisk in about 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth, continuing to whisk until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Bring the mixture to a simmer and add the chopped broccoli and cauliflower. Cook the vegetables in the broth until they’re tender, about 10-15 minutes.

Once the vegetables are cooked, reduce the heat to low and stir in 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, along with 1 cup of heavy cream. Continue stirring until the cheese is completely melted and the soup is creamy and smooth. For an extra creamy texture, you can use an immersion blender to blend some or all of the soup to your desired consistency.

Season the soup with salt, pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg for added depth of flavor. Let the soup simmer for a few more minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

Ladle the Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Soup into bowls and garnish with additional shredded cheese, a sprinkle of fresh herbs like parsley or chives, and a pinch of black pepper. Serve with crusty bread or crackers for a complete and satisfying meal.

This Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Soup is sure to become a favorite in your household, offering a perfect blend of cheesy richness and vegetable goodness that’s both comforting and nutritious. Enjoy!
