**This is a recipe handed down from my mom. We used to have it when I was younger all the time. It is yummy and easy! Serve it with crushed up saltine crackers.**
Broccoli Cheese Soup
4 cans chicken broth (I use the reduced sodium one)
2 heads of brocoli with broccoli florets cut off.
4 cups milk (I use non-fat milk)
3/4 cup flour
2 tsp onion salt
3 cups grated Cheddar cheese or a 16oz block of velveeta cheese (I use cheddar cheese)
In a stock pan, combine the 4 cans of chicken broth, and the brocoli florets. Cook until the brocoli is tender. Remove all brocoli florets from the broth and place in a blender. Add about 1 cup of broth as well. Blend in blender until it is smooth. Add back to broth and bring back to a boil.
Then in same blender, add 4 cups of milk and 3/4 cups flour. Blend until smooth. Slowly pour in to the broth and brocoli mixture. Stir until it begins to thicken. Once it is starting to thicken, turn the stove off, and add the onion salt and stir well. Then add the cheese and replace lid. The cheese will begin to melt in the hot mixture. After about 5 minutes stir well. The cheese should all be melted. Serve.
