Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup
Here is a thick and creamy soup to start off your meal or have with a sandwich.
1 small onion, diced
3 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
2 cup chicken stock
1 cup cream (can substitute stock if you want to cut the cream out)
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup green onions
salt and pepper to taste
dash of cayenne pepper, optional
1-2 cups lightly steamed chopped broccoli
In a saucepan, sauté onion in butter for 5 to 7 minutes. Blend corn starch into chicken stock and cream. Add to onions. Cook until thick. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add 1/4 cup green onions and warm broccoli, salt and pepper to taste, and cayenne if desired. Garnish with remaining green onions. Can also add corn chips to the bowl.
