Cheesy Vegetable Soup starring the Quick Chef

Have you all met Tupperware's Quick Chef? It used to be red and it used to only have two blades. New and improved Quick Chef Pro System has three blades and can dice whatever you throw in there.
yes, you can chop carrots in the Quick Chef.


Of course, I unfortunately forgot to take a photo of the finished product (in my beautiful Chef Series Dutch oven) because I was too busy serving it to friends and then eating it myself! But here's the recipe for you...(copied from here)

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped carrot
1 stalk celery, finely chopped (feel free to add more celery if you like celery; I don't, so I don't add much)
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth (I usually use a mixture of low-sodium chicken broth and broth made with chicken soup base because it gives it such nice flavor)
2 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 Tablespoon flour
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup milk
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 heaping cups shredded cheddar cheese

Melt the butter in a large soup pot. Add onions, carrots, and celery and saute over medium heat until tender. Add garlic and cook 1 or 2 additional minutes. Add chicken broth and potatoes, bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender. Mix flour with water, add, and simmer until soup is slightly thickened. Add milk and broccoli and cook until broccoli is just tender and soup is heated through. Stir in cheese, allow to melt, and serve.
