Blaine, who is not a fan of soup, just called over from the kitchen "oh man, this is so good, I am licking the bowl like it's cake batter". That's right! Delicious Broccoli cheese soup with no velveeta!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Another great one from mykitchencafe.blogspot.com
1 can chicken broth (or I just used chicken base and 2 C water)
1 small onion, diced
1/3 C flour
1/4 C butter
pepper to taste
2C milk (I used 1%)
1 1/2 C shredded chedder cheese (the sharper the better, I had some extra sharp...hot dang it was good)
1/2 C shredded swiss cheese
steamed chopped broccoli (I totall forgot to chop it, whoops)
Simmer chicken broth and onion for 15 minutes in a covered small saucepan, until onions are soft. Heat milk in microwave for 1-2 minutes. In a separate medium sized stockpot, melt butter then add flour and pepper. Cook together for a couple of minutes, then whisk in warmed milk. Stir and heat together on medium-high heat until soup starts to thicken. Next add chicken broth and continue to stir until well blended. Add cheeses and steamed broccoli. Serve.
I had no gumption to make bread bowls tonight but it would have been awesome with them. Enjoy!
