Celiac.com 03/11/2017 - Need some broccoli cheddar soup? Need it to be gluten-free? Here's a gluten-free copycat of that much-loved broccoli cheddar cheese soup, made famous by the much-loved food chain Panera. You're welcome.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups milk
2 cups chicken stock
  • 
2 cups coarsely chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup carrots, cut to matchstick size
  • 2½ cups shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 
½ large yellow onion, chopped

  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 
¼ cup potato starch
  • 
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
  • 
salt and ground black pepper to taste


Directions:
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Sauté onion in hot butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

In a jar, mix potato starch together with about ½ cup of the chicken stock. Cover with a tight lid, and shake until blended.

In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, melt ¼ cup of butter

Gradually pour milk, along with the potato starch mixture while whisking constantly.

Stir chicken stock into milk mixture. Bring to a simmer; cook until the mixture is thickened, about 15-20 minutes. Adjust thickness by adding water, or a bit more potato starch, as needed.

Add broccoli, carrots, sauteéd onion, and celery; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

Stir Cheddar cheese into mixture until cheese melts. Mix well.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.
