What to do with that huge bag of broccoli you bought at Costco?? Make soup!!
Saute 1 chopped onion and 1/2 cup chopped carrot in 1 T. butter and 1 T. olive oil until soft. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup flour and stir to coat vegetables. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add 4 cups chicken broth 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. black pepper, and 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg. Add 3-4 cups of broccoli florets chopped into smaller pieces. Reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Puree soup in blender or use an immersion blender until desired smoothness. Add 2 cups milk and 2-3 cups grated cheese. Adjust seasonings.
