Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Been a little chilly, made the perfect soup to warm my bones. Always a crowd favorite around here!BROCOLLI CHEESE SOUP

12 cups of vegetable stock
2 stalks celery, diced
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic
2 large potatoes, cubed
2 heads broccoli, chopped
S&P to taste
3 cups grated cheese
3 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp flour
3 tbsp cream
1 tbsp olive oil

In a large stock pot heat olive oil, add onion, celery and garlic, sauté till soft. Add vegetable stock, bring to a boil. Add potatoes and simmer till potatoes begin to fall apart. Add broccoli and simmer for about 5-10 min. Remove from heat, let cool slightly and then transfer to blender and puree till smooth. Return to stock pot, add grated cheese mix, and stir till cheese is melted in, works best if you do this away from heat. In separate dish melt butter, add flour and then cream, add to soup, return to heat and simmer for about 15 minutes. Serve topped with fresh black pepper and grated cheese.
