Unlike a lot of homemade soups that keep you in the kitchen for hours, this one is quick and doesn't require a lot of special ingredients. Very hearty and filling. Other vegetables can be substituted for the broccoli if you like.

Step-By-Step

Step 1 Direction Photo

1Cook broccoli 3 minutes. Put in blender to chop fine & drain off liquid. (I skip this part because I like the broccoli a little chunkier.)

2In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add onions, stir, and add flour. Blend and add milk, stirring until thick.

3Add the broccoli, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and cheese. Heat until cheese melts. Serve with crackers or warm bread.

4If you get tired of broccoli, you may substitute cauliflower, spinach, corn, even asparagus. Use your imagination!
