Broccoli Cheddar Soup | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

This recipe is a slightly altered version of Heidi Swanson’ s Broccoli Cheddar Soup from 101 Cookbooks.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large or 2 small potatoes, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 head of broccoli (around 16 ounces), chopped
  • 3 cups gluten-free vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash of cayenne
  • dash of Hungarian paprika
  • 2/3 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese, plus more for topping

Heat oil over medium heat. Saute onions with a pinch of salt for a few minutes or until clear in color. Add potatoes and cook for around 4-5 minutes, until slightly softened. Add garlic and saute another minute, then add the broth and wine. Bring liquid to a boil then reduce to a medium heat until the potatoes are tender. Add cayenne, paprika, salt and pepper to taste. Add broccoli and cook for around 2-4 minutes or until tender.

Remove from heat and blend with an immersion blender or food processor. Once blended add the cheddar cheese and stir until completely melted. Garnish with a sprinkle of cheese before serving.

Serves 2-4
