Sondra Barker Recipes

 

While the east coast is getting slammed with one storm after another, we’ve teamed up with Wyke Farms Ivy’s Vintage Reserve Cheddar to create a delicious Broccoli Cheddar Soup recipe. This is one of my favorite soups to make on a snowed-in day. It’s full of vitamins and a great way to sneak in those extra vegetables with your kids. As you might have guessed, what makes this soup exceptional is the cheese. You should never use a bland mild cheddar cheese for this soup. A quality flavorful cheddar cheese will make all the difference. As soon as we sampled Wyke Farms Ivy’s Vintage Cheddar, we knew it was destined for creating a Broccoli Cheddar Soup recipe full of richness and flavor. We don’t like to brag, but I can tell you my soup is definitely better than Panera!

 

Wyke Farms Vintage Reserve Cheddar Cheese

 

This cheese is very unique and award-winning for its rich flavor and sharp tang followed by a lasting mellowness. Imported from Wyke Farms in Somerset, England, Ivy’s Vintage Reserve cheddar is made using grandmother Ivy’s 100-year-old family recipe!

The perfect recipe for sneaking in those extra vegetables!

 

In addition, when creating this soup I like to finely grate the broccoli stalks and one carrot to sneak in extra vegetables and add extra texture. Your family members who tend to avoid eating enough vegetables won’t even know they were added. I also never blend my soup and really enjoy having small chunks of broccoli in every bite!
