  • 2 (14.5-ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 4 medium potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2-3 large carrots diced
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 small heads broccoli diced small
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • cups milk plus more as needed
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese plus more for topping (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic pepper
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and chopped


  • In a large pot, add broth, potatoes, carrots and onion powder and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Add broccoli, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and cook for another minute, until golden brown. Whisk in milk, turn the heat to medium, and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
  • Add cheese and stir until it is all melted. Add salt and garlic pepper. Pour cheese sauce into the soup pot and stir until well combined.
  • Add more milk if you like a thinner consistency, and season with additional salt and garlic pepper to taste.
  • Top with bacon pieces and extra cheese, if desired, and serve warm.



Adjust the Texture: Use heavy cream or half-and-half instead of milk for a creamier soup. For a lighter texture, thin it out with extra broth or water.
