Broccoli Cheese Soup

First snow of the season, another perfect day for soup.  This is another one of my throw it all together recipes. The amounts can vary to your taste or how much you need to make.

One of my shortcuts is omit the onion and chicken broth and replace with a packet of dry “Golden Onion” soup mix. (A onion soup with a chicken bouillon base.)

  • Broccoli
  • chicken broth/water to cover
  • onion to taste
  • butter or margarine
  • flour
  • milk
  • 8 oz velveta
  • shredded colby jack

Boil broccoli, onion in liquids. When softened, blend most of this down and add back to the pot. (Be sure to leave some broccoli chunks.)

Make Roux with butter flour and milk. Add to soup. Add cubed cheeses. Continue to cook until cheese cubes melt down.

Serve with shredded cheese. Great in a bread bowl!
