This creamy vegetable soup is packed full of veggies, and made creamy with milk and fresh grated sharp cheddar cheese.

A few months ago I was 9 months pregnant and not feeling well for several weeks.

All I wanted was a big bowl of nourishing creamy vegetable soup and nothing from the store could even come close.

There is just nothing like a big hot and cozy bowl of soup when you are feeling sick.

As soon as I felt better, this was my first recipe I had to test!

I needed a go to hearty and delicious go to soup.

Since then we have made this veggie soup many times and enjoy the leftovers for easy lunches during the week.

Step 5: Mix together the milk and flour in a bowl, then add it to the soup.

This is what makes the soup thicken up and adds creaminess.

Step 6: Add in the finely diced broccoli and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Step 7: Add the freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese and stir until melted and the soup thickens.

The soup will continue to thicken as it cooks.

Step 8: Salt the soup to taste and serve.

We love serving this creamy vegetable soup with rolls, baguettes, or crackers.

I love to make a meal of it with a bowl of vegetable soup, buttered rolls, and a side salad.
