3. Once the cheese slightly melts, add the broccoli and stir for about a minute.

4. Add 2 cups of stock or water and milk.

5. Cook in low heat for 15 minutes or until broccoli’s cooked.

6. Stir in the cream, salt and pepper.*

7. Using the blender, puree the soup.**

8. Sprinkle with paprika, nutmeg and black pepper. Top it off with cheese and serve hot.

*use the salt sparingly as the Cheddar will lend its saltiness to the soup already

**If the soup is still runny, dissolve 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in 2-3 tablespoon of hot water. Make sure that the cornstarch is stirred and dissolved as much as it can. Stir it in the soup, 1 tablespoon at a time. Heat the to just boiling, cool it a bit and check the consistency. Repeat the same if you want thicker but be careful in adding too mich as it will make the soup gluey.
