Sketch-Free Broccoli and Cheese Soup


This is by far, hands down, THE best broccoli and cheese soup I have ever tasted. My husband does not like soup and he couldn’t get enough of it!
Ingredients
  • one bunch of fresh broccoli [enough for a few cups of chopped tops]
  • 2 cups vegetable [or chicken!] stock
  • 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese, plus plenty extra for topping [freshly grated]
  • 1 heaping cup of regular gouda cheese [freshly grated, rind removed]
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots [or a little extra!]
  • 1 small white onion [about 2/3 cup or 1 cup, chopped]
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup half and half [or heavy cream]
  • 3 TBSP all purpose flour
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
