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.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 pkg
(10 oz.) frozen broccoli, chopped
3 Tbsp
butter
1 Tbsp
minced onion or very small onion, chopped fine
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour
4 c
milk
1/8 tsp
paprika
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
1 tsp
salt
1 c
shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook broccoli 3 minutes. Put in blender to chop fine & drain off liquid. (I skip this part because I like the broccoli a little chunkier.)
2
In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add onions, stir, and add flour. Blend and add milk, stirring until thick.
3
Add the broccoli, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and cheese. Heat until cheese melts. Serve with crackers or warm bread.
4
If you get tired of broccoli, you may substitute cauliflower, spinach, corn, even asparagus. Use your imagination!
