Equipment

  • Immersion Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 Onion Medium sized
  • 2 Carrots Medium sized
  • 2 cups Broccoli florets
  • 2 cups Cauliflower florets
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • 6 cups Chicken Broth Low Sodium
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar
  • 2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Sweet Paprika

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°.
  • Wash the broccoli and cauliflower and cut the heads into florets. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Peel and chop the carrots and place them on the baking sheet with the broccoli and cauliflower.
  • Peel and chop the onion and place it on the baking sheet with the rest of the vegetables.
  • Add the olive oil to the vegetables and sprinkle the vegetables with 2 teaspoons of salt. Mix the vegetables around so they are well coated.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, take the baking sheet out of the oven and spoon the vegetables into a Dutch oven. Cover the vegetables with the broth and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  • When it begins to simmer, use an immersion blender and carefully blend the soup until it is a creamy consistency.
  • Once the consistency is to your liking, add the heavy cream and shredded cheddar. Reduce the heat to low and stir until all the cheese is melted.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Half and half can be substituted for heavy cream.
  • To keep this recipe vegetarian, vegetable broth can be substituted instead of chicken broth.
