easy, breesy, cheesy...

I apologize for not having more posts lately. I thought I had escaped the yucky crud going around...luckily I did not get the flu, but having a cold is miserable too! To me there is nothing more comforting than a hearty, creamy, delicious soup when you feel bad. Enter: Cheesy Broccoli Soup. This soup is full of flavor and slides right down the throat to warm the belly :) Plus, it's not hard to make so you don't have to stand for hours over a hot stove...

Cheesy Broccoli Soup
adapted from Taste of Home, Heartwarming Soups

2 cups water
2 cubes chicken bullion
1 pkg. (16 oz) frozen broccoli [chopped in processor]
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup butter
3 T. AP flour
1 cup milk
1 lb. Velveeta cheese, cubed

Step 1: In large saucepan, bring water and bullion to a boil. Add broccoli. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup liquid.
Step 2: In another large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Whisk in flour until blended. Add the milk and cheese. Cook over medium-low heat until thickened and cheese is melted, stirring frequently. Stir in broccoli and reserved cooking liquid.
Makes about 4 servings.
