Cajun Trinity Broccoli Cheddar Soup

We made a favorite soup better! The vegetables and seasonings in our Taste the Seasons Cajun Trinity mix elevate the flavors of this broccoli cheddar soup to a whole new level. Add a little more cayenne if you wish to add a bit more Cajun kick.


1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup flour

1 package Taste the Seasons Cajun Trinity mix

2 cups chicken broth

1 pound fresh broccoli, chopped (about 3 cups)

4 ounces carrots, shredded (about 4 cups)

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups half and half

12 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded


In a large saucepan, melt butter; add flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes until light brown. Add the Cajun Trinity mix and chicken broth gradually, stirring constantly to blend. Stir in the broccoli, carrots and salt. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in the half and half; bring to a simmer and cook over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and slowly add the cheese, stirring until melted and blended.

Note: For best results, shred a block of cheddar cheese rather than use pre-shredded bagged cheese.

Makes 4-6 servings
