    1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until they become translucent.
    2. Sprinkle the flour over the onion and garlic mixture, and stir continuously for about 2 minutes to make a roux.
    3. Slowly pour in the vegetable broth while stirring to avoid lumps. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil.
    4. Add the chopped broccoli to the pot, reduce the heat to low, and let it simmer for about 15 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.
    5. Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, carefully puree the soup until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids.
    6. Return the blended soup to the pot and stir in the milk. Heat the soup gently over low heat, but do not let it boil.
    7. Gradually add the grated cheddar cheese to the soup, stirring until it’s fully melted and incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    8. While the soup is simmering, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
    9. Place the cubed bread on a baking sheet and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Toast the bread cubes in the oven for about 10 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy, creating croutons.
    10. Serve the broccoli cheddar soup hot, garnished with the homemade croutons on top. Enjoy your delicious homemade soup!
    Pro Tip
    • For extra flavor, sauté the onions and garlic until they’re aromatic and slightly caramelized.
    • Customize your croutons with a sprinkle of herbs like thyme or rosemary before toasting for an extra layer of flavor.
    • Don’t rush melting the cheese; low heat ensures a smooth, lump-free soup.
    • Adjust the soup’s consistency by adding more milk if desired.
