Wow Me Wednesday . . .

Standard

Winter has not left us yet.  The weekend was a bit snowy and very cold.  Perfect weather to try out a new recipe and any excuse to use my KitchenAid Immersion Blender!! Love that thing!!

I found this recipe on “The Pioneer Woman”.  I just cut it in half – didn’t want to eat it for a week, her recipe serves 10.  Ree also uses whole milk & half/half but I usually only buy 1%milk, however I did buy some heavy cream so that’s what I used.  I’m giving you my recipe but wanted to include her link for step by step instructions.  Again . . . super simple and super yummy!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

1/2 white onion – diced
1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 TBS flour
2 cups milk (1%)
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups broccoli heads
1 pinch nutmeg
1 1/2 cups grated cheese (I used sharp cheddar)
 
Melt butter over medium heat, add onions & cook 3-4 minutes.  Sprinkle flour over onions, stir to combine and cook for 1 minute or so.  Pour in milk and heavy cream.  Add nutmeg, broccoli, salt & black pepper.  Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, until broccoli is tender. Stir in cheese and allow to melt.  Now it’s time for the fun . . . . bring out your immersion blender!!  Sprinkle with more cheese (because you can never have enough cheese!) and enjoy!!!
