Broccoli-Cheddar Soup

This is a wonderfully easy and gluten-free soup recipe to whip together for a meal.  It's packed with flavor, but make sure you use good quality cheddar cheese (I've used a mix of a mild cheddar and sharper white cheddar here). You can serve it with gluten-free rolls, garlic bread, homemade croutons, or plain (with a bit of extra shredded cheese on top).  Enjoy!

Broccoli-Cheddar Soup
Based on a recipe by Emeril Lagasse
Serves 4

In a medium-large pot over medium heat, cook until onions are tender (3-4 minutes):
2-3 Tbsp butter
1/2 onion, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
pinch nutmeg

Add and cook 30 seconds:
1/2 tsp minced garlic
pinch ground thyme

Add and cook 1 minute:
3 Tbsp Kristin's Gluten-Free Flour Mix

Add slowly, stirring regularly to allow mixture to thicken:
3 cups chicken broth (OR 3 cups water + 3-4 tsp Asian mushroom seasoning)

Let soup come to a boil and thicken (4-5 minutes).
3 cups broccoli heads/tops

Let cook ~10-15 minutes, until broccoli softens. You may need to lower the heat to medium-low if it starts boiling too much.

Blend with a stick blender.
Mix into hot soup:
1-2 cups cheddar cheese

Serve with extra shredded cheese.
