cheesy vegetable chowder

I found this delicious soup recipe on Pinterest and made it on Sunday.  I was definitely impressed with this soup.  It is similar to a broccoli cheddar soup, but incorporates more vegetables, making it even more tasty.  This soup is guaranteed to warm your soul and keep your belly full!

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped carrot
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 2 heaping cups shredded cheddar cheese


Melt the butter in a large soup pot.  Add onions, carrots, and celery and saute over medium heat until tender.  Add garlic and cook 1 or 2 additional minutes.
Add chicken broth and potatoes, bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender.  Mix flour with water, add, and simmer until soup is slightly thickened.
Add milk and broccoli and cook until broccoli is just tender and soup is heated through.  Stir in cheese, allow to melt, and serve.
