Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 cans 14.5-ounce of low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2-3 large diced carrots
  • 4 medium peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 2 small heads of finely chopped broccoli
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • cup of all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • cups of milk extra as required
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 4 cups of shredded cheddar cheese extra for garnish (optional)
  • ½ tsp of garlic pepper
  • 6 cooked and chopped bacon slices

Instructions

  • Commence by placing a large pot on medium-high heat. Add chicken broth, carrots, potatoes, and onion powder. Allow the mixture to reach a rolling boil before reducing the heat to medium-low.
  • Cover the pot and let the vegetables simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Toss in the chopped broccoli, then re-cover the pot. Continue simmering for another 10 minutes.
  • While the vegetables are simmering, prepare the cheese sauce. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Gradually whisk in the flour and cook for about a minute until it takes on a golden-brown hue.
  • Slowly whisk in the milk. Raise the heat to medium and continue stirring until the sauce thickens, usually around 5 minutes.
  • Incorporate the shredded cheddar cheese into the sauce, stirring until completely melted. Add in the salt and garlic pepper.
  • Merge the cheese sauce into the simmering vegetable pot, ensuring everything blends perfectly.
  • For those who prefer a less dense soup, feel free to add extra milk to reach your desired consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more salt and garlic pepper if needed.
  • As a finishing touch, garnish with chopped bacon and additional cheese, should your palate desire.

Notes

Customize the Texture: For an ultra-creamy experience, opt for heavy cream or half-and-half instead of milk. For a lighter consistency, consider diluting with extra broth or water.
