Broccoli Cheddar Soup

This is Isla’s favorite soup. Since quarantine, she has requested it as it is the only soup she will order from Panera.

4 tbsp butter
½ medium onion, chopped
5-6 cloves garlic, minced
4 tbsp All purpose Flour
2 cups chicken stock
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
12 oz frozen broccoli florets
1 large carrot, finely chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
8 oz grated mild cheddar

Melt butter in a larger sauce pan and sauté onions and garlic for about 4 minutes, until starting to turn translucent. Stir in flour and keep stirring until it starts to turn brown. Carefully and slowly add in the chicken stock stirring it in as you go. This will help to alleviate clumps. Add in salt, pepper and paprika and stir. Pour in florets and carrot and let cook for about 10 minutes. Bring the heat down to low and add in the cream, milk and cheddar. Taste before serving.
