Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion finely diced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose einkorn flour
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 lbs broccoli frozen
  • 1 tsp salt plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 lb American cheese cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded

Instructions

  • Place a large soup pot over medium-high heat and melt butter. Add onion and cook 2–3 minutes until onion begins to soften. Add white wine and cook until the wine is almost completely evaporated.
  • Sprinkle onions with einkorn flour then use a whisk to stir for about 1 minute. Add chicken broth while whisking constantly and continue whisking until flour is completely incorporated. Add broccoli, half-and-half, salt, pepper and garlic powder and stir to combine.
  • Bring mixture to a boil stirring frequently, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • If a finer texture is desired, pulse the soup in batches in a blender or use an immersion blender right in the pot. Add American cheese cubes to the soup a handful at a time, stirring until melted before adding the next handful. Add shredded cheese, stir until melted then remove from heat. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper and thin the consistency by adding a bit more chicken broth if desired.

Notes

Be sure to remove from heat after adding cheese or stir frequently to avoid scorching.
