Easy and fast way to steam broccoli is in the microwave. Dice broccoli and spread it in one even layer on a large plate. If you have a microwave steam bowl with a lid, that’s perfect. I use a microwave plate cover but if you don’t have one, you can use another plate turned upside down to cover with just leave a little crack for steam. Microwave for about a minute and a half and set aside.
In a medium pot, heat up oil over medium heat. Add diced onion and shredded carrot. Saute until onion is transparent.
Smash and dice garlic and add it to the pot. Saute until fragrant.
Sprinkle flour and mix until veggies are coated with flour.
Slowly pour in stock while constantly but slowly stirring. Let it heat through. Add heavy cream and stir.
Add salt, crushed red pepper flakes, parsley, and oregano. Stir well.
Let soup heat through and get to simmer. Once it starts to simmer, start adding cheeses.
Add cheeses while slowly stirring. Cook and stir slowly until cheeses are all melted.
Stir in broccoli. Lower the heat to low and cook for about 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Top each bowl with some grated Parmesan cheese and your choice of croutons of bread.
