Once the cool weather begins, so does soup season. We couldn't think of a better recipe to kickoff this season than our Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe. It's a classic all on it's own and deserves to be the spotlight for at least a little while.
Elevate this simple recipe by serving each bowl with a slice of fresh bread for dipping. Or an even better idea could be to turn this recipe into a bread bowl! This is our favorite way since it means less dishes to wash after dinner.

¼ cup butter
¼ cup all-purpose flour
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
3 cups milk
⅓ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Melt the butter in your Larder & Vine Dutch Oven over medium heat, and mix in the flour. Reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Mix in the chicken stock and milk, and season with salt and white pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer about 10 minutes.
In your Larder & Vine Saucepan, bring salted water to a boil. Place the broccoli in the boiling water, and cook 2 minutes, or until just tender. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.
Gradually add and mix cheese into your Dutch Oven until melted. Mix in the broccoli and continue cooking for about 5 minutes.
