We couldn’t be prouda this chowda! Our chefs have totally turned broccoli cheese soup on its head by introducing rich, deep flavors into the equation. Roasted broccoli imparts a toasty, caramelized flavor while yukon gold potatoes add body. The spuds are gently mashed into the broth to create a creamy, velvety consistency without feeling too heavy. For a decadent final touch, the chowder is swirled with Pepper Jack and tangy sour cream. On the side, there’s garlicky toasts for dunking and swiping (trust us, you won’t want to waste a drop).
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Cut broccoli into equal-sized pieces. Halve and peel onion; finely dice one half (save other half for another use). Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces (no need to peel).
Toss broccoli on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack until tender and beginning to char, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven; transfer to a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop into smaller pieces.
Meanwhile, heat a large drizzle of olive oil and 1 TBSP butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, 3-5 minutes. Stir in flour and ¾ tsp garlic powder. Stir for 30 seconds.
Stir potatoes, milk, stock concentrates, and 2 cups water into pot. Season generously with salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are tender, 15-20 minutes. Turn off heat.
Meanwhile, halve demi-baguette lengthwise. Toast in toaster or toaster oven until golden. In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave 1½ TBSP butter until softened, about 10 seconds. Stir in remaining garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Evenly spread onto toasted baguette, then halve each piece on a diagonal.
Using a potato masher, gently smash potatoes in pot (about 5 times) until slightly broken down (this will help thicken the chowder). Stir in cheese and sour cream until thoroughly combined and melted. Stir in most of the broccoli (save a handful for garnish). If chowder seems too thick, stir in up to ¼ cup water. Season with salt and pepper. Divide chowder between bowls. Top with remaining broccoli. Serve with garlic toast on the side.
