Finely chopped garlic
1/3 cup flour

Begin by melting 1/3 cup of butter in a large pot. Sauté a finely chopped yellow onion until it becomes fragrant.
Add finely chopped garlic to the sautéed onions and continue cooking for an additional minute. The kitchen will be filled with irresistible aromas.
Whisk in 1/3 cup of flour and cook for a few minutes or until it takes on a golden brown hue. This will help thicken your soup.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and slowly pour in chicken stock and half-and-half, making sure to dissolve the flour into the liquid. This step is crucial to achieving a creamy consistency.
Season your soup with salt, black pepper, a hint of mustard powder, and a dash of garlic powder. Stir well and allow the flavors to meld, cooking and thickening for about 5 minutes.
Add in your chopped broccoli and carrots. Gently simmer the soup until the broccoli becomes completely tender.
To take your soup to the next level, mix in cheddar cheese, and stir until it’s beautifully combined, creating a velvety texture.
Your Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup is now ready to serve. Ladle it into bowls and enjoy the comforting, cheese-infused warmth.
