I LOVE cheddar broccoli soup, although it is hard to pick what soup is my favorite, this one is up there.   I got the recipe from Cooking Light, of all places, and it really was good!  I served it with a roasted red pepper panini – and it was the perfect dipper 🙂

Perfect for those cold winter nights!

Cooking spray
1  cup  chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrot * I added
1 cup spinach * I added
2  garlic cloves, minced
3  cups  chicken broth
1  (16-ounce) package broccoli florets
2 1/2  cups  2% reduced-fat milk
1/3  cup  all-purpose flour
1/4  teaspoon  black pepper
8  ounces  Velveeta Light
Heat a large nonstick saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion , carrots, spinach and garlic; saute 3 minutes or until tender. Add broth and broccoli. Bring broccoli mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook 10 minutes.
Combine milk and flour, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add milk mixture to broccoli mixture. Cook 5 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring constantly. Stir in pepper. Remove from heat; add cheese, stirring until cheese melts.
Place one-third of the soup in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Return pureed soup mixture to pan
