Creamy, Dreamy Broccoli Cheese Soup
I have never made this kind of soup before, but hubby had a hanker'n for it so I went on a search for the perfect recipe. I found a couple that looked good, but wasn't exactly what I would do, so changed it up here and there until I came up with a creamy, dreamy recipe that will comfort any soup lovin' soul. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
- 2 lb
- broccoli, bunch (cut in small bites)
- 1 stick
- 1 small
- onion (chopped)
- 2 clove
- garlic (minced)
- 6 Tbsp
- 32 oz
- chicken broth (i use better than bullion)
- 12 oz
- evaporated milk
- 1 lb
- pasturized cheese (such as velveta) cut into small squares
1In an almost large pot, steam your broccoli for 10 min and set aside. Dump out water and return pot to stove.
2On medium heat melt butter and sauté onions until tender (approx 5 min). Add garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add flour and stir continually for 1 minute.
3Slowly add chicken broth and stir until thick. Add evaporated milk that you have poured into a 2 cup measuring cup filled the rest of the way to the line with water. Stir until it begins to bubble. Turn off heat and take off of burner and then add steamed broccoli and cheese. Stir until melted and enjoy!
