Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2 crowns of broccoli, cut into 1-inch florets
  • 2 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth, plus additional if soup is too thick
  • ½ cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 4-6 tbsp. flour
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 cups milk (1% or 2%)
  • ¼ cup shredded Gouda cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus additional for garnish
  • ¼ cup shredded or grated Parmesan
  • ¼ cup shredded Jarlsberg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Warm a large pot over high heat, then add broccoli, onions and chicken broth. Bring to a boil then simmer about 15-20 minutes.
  2. In a separate pan, melt the butter and add flour to create a roué. Add milk and heat until it bubbles and thickens.
  3. Next, add the cheeses one at a time, mixing after each addition, making sure all of it melts.
  4. Add the cheese mixture to the broth and broccoli; add additional chicken broth if soup is too thick. Season with salt and pepper.
