Kumquaty Cheddar Broccoli Soup (with turkey)

1/2 onion diced
2 tbs olive oil
2 lbs broccoli chopped
1 carrot shredded
1 quart low sodium chicken broth
8 oz heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
6 oz mild cheddar
6 oz sharp cheddar
leftover turkey shredded (or other meat can be used like a roasted chicken or some baked ham….yum)

It’s been pretty cold out and the idea of yet another egg filled week sounded a little monotonous so I decided to make soup tis week. First I had to look up how to thicken without a roux and saw that my best options for this recipe was veggie puree and heavy cream since they didn’t include adding any ingredients that weren’t already in my recipe. It seems to have turned out pretty well. 🙂

Heat up olive oil in soup pot. Add diced onion and cook til soft. Add shredded carrot, broccoli and chicken broth. Once up to a simmer spoon out some of the broth and about 1/3 of the broccoli into a blender and let cool for a bit. Blend til smooth and add back to soup pot and stir. Add heavy cream and cheeses. Stir til cheese melts. Add turkey salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low until all flavors merge (about 30 minutes). This got a thumbs up from the husband yay!
