I love to cook and bake and we eat together at home most nights. Right now it's soup season and this cheesy vegetable soup is a favorite! 

The soup was wonderful paired with a nice Pig-In-A-Blanket.

2 Tablespoons butter

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 cup shredded carrot

2 stalks celery, finely chopped

2 cups chopped broccoli

2 cups chopped cauliflower

3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

3 cloves minced garlic

4 cups chicken broth

3 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped

1.5 Tablespoon flour

1/2 cup water

1 cup milk

Melt butter and cook onion, carrot, celery until soft on medium heat. Add garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low boil and cook until potatoes are softened.

Mix flour with water and add to soup. Allow to thicken for a few minutes. Add broccoli and cauliflower, milk, 2-3 dashes bottled hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Cook on medium or medium low until veggies are soft. Add shredded cheese and stir until melted.
