Let’s Get Cooking!
You will need:
1/2 stick of Butter
1/4 cup of All-Purpose Flour
2 Garlic Cloves minced
1 small Onion diced
1 cup of Carrot Matchsticks
3-4 cups of Fresh Broccoli chopped
3 cups of Chicken or Vegetable broth
2 cups of Half and Half
2 cups of Velveeta Cheese cubed
1 cup of mild cheddar cheese shredded
Salt and Black Pepper for taste
In a dutch oven or soup pot, saute onions and garlic with a teaspoon of oil until tender. Add butter and melt. Once butter is melted, add flour and whisk to form a roux. It will look similar to clumps of flour or dough. Next, pour in the broth and half and half. Increase the heat to medium-high and whisk until the sauce is smooth. Next, whisk in the cheese and add the broccoli and carrots. Cook on medium-low for about 20-30 minutes until thick and vegetables are tender. Season with salt and ground black pepper. Serve with crackers, sandwiches or in bread bowl.
