Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Is there anything more hearty, cheesy and perfect than Broccoli Cheddar soup? You get all of the stick your bones goodness you get from all the best comfort food and the e sharp, cheesy flavor from the cheddar while still getting a good dose of veggies. Perfect on a winter night, yet we crave it year round. Feel free to add some extra broccoli in there to sneak in some extra veggies!

For serving, we love to dip in some homemade garlic bread, but if you haven't had enough broccoli and cheese we definitely recommend this broccoli cheesy bread. If you're looking for even more ways to use up some broccoli? Try out our Beef and Broccoli Noodles!

If you have any leftovers (and we don't think you will), you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
