Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe from Linda Carter of Southside Café


  • 1 medium onion
  • 8 cups of chopped broccoli
  • 1 quart chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 2 cups canned cheddar cheese sauce
  • 1/4 cup oil or clarified butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Seasoning to taste


  • Combine the first 3 ingredients in a heavy pot and simmer on medium heat until the broccoli is soft, add the heavy cream and the cheddar cheese sauce. Let simmer for another 30 minutes.
  • Combine the butter and flower, cook over low heat for several minutes to get rid of the floury taste.
  • This will be the thickening agent for the soup. When the soup reaches the desired thickness, remove soup from the heat and add the sour cream.
