This week for our vegetarian night, I whipped up a grand 'ole pot of Broccoli Cheese Soup for the first time ever and was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. So our meal consisted of baked potatoes and the soup....bellies full to the brim....toes nice and warm.
Here's my recipe...
Broccoli Cheese Soup
2 cups chicken broth
1 small onion, diced finely
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 T butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 cups warm milk2 cups cheese (I used a Mexican blend because that's all I had and it was yummy!!)
2 1/2 -3 cups broccoli, steamed and chopped into desirable bite-size chunks
In a small pot, bring the chicken broth and chopped onion to a low boil and cook until the onions are cooked through.
In another pot, melt the butter and then add the four. Combine well then add the salt and pepper. In a separate medium-sized stockpot, melt butter then add flour, salt and pepper. Whisk in the milk and stir until the mixture starts to thicken. Once it's thick, add the chicken broth and mix well.
It's that easy and oh so good!!!
