Not your Usual Broccoli Cheese Soup
Usually you think of a thick orange soup with green pieces in it. Try this for a little different twist to an old favorite. We always had this around the holidays.

1In a large sauce pan cook broccoli and onion in the water and bouillon cubes. Boil until tender but not mushy. Do not drain!
2While the vegetables are cooking melt butter in a medium sauce pan. Stir in flour and salt. Add the milk while whisking. Whisk until smooth. Let it come to a boil continuing to whisk. This will be thick.
