Prep Time
15 minutes
Cook Time
45 minutes

Aroma® 20-cup Digital Multicookerwith Sauté-Then-Simmer STS® (also on Amazon)



  • 5 tbsp butter
  • ½ yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1½ cups coarsely chopped broccoli florets
  • 2½ cups sharp cheddar, shredded
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Set your multicooker for Sauté-Then-Simmer STS®. Close the lid and let it heat briefly.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter to the inner pot and let it melt. Once melted, add the onion, carrots, and celery.
  3. Cook for about 7 minutes until soft while stirring frequently with a long-handled wooden or heat safe spoon.
  4. Add in the rest of the butter and the flour. Stir constantly to melt the butter and coat all of the vegetables with the flour.
  5. Continue to stir and cook the flour, about 4 minutes. It should be starting to turn slightly brown.
  6. Gradually pour in the milk while stirring, then the vegetable stock. Stir well to combine.
  7. Allow the soup to come to a simmer for 30 minutes. Note that the automatic turn-off might switch your cooker from Sauté-Then-Simmer STS® to Keep Warm. If this happens, simply reset the cooker for STS.
  8. Add in the chopped broccoli florets. Stir well and let cook another 10 minutes until the broccoli is cooked.
  9. Switch the cooker to Keep Warm. Stir in the cheese until melted and fully incorporated.
  10. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then serve.

*TIP: This soup is PERFECT for a bread bowl.
