Another favorite recipe from my mom. My fall broccoli is big enough to pick, so this soup was on the "must" list this week. Even my children love it.
2 cup chicken broth OR water with bouillon
2 lb broccoli (or about 2 qt chopped broccoli)
2 T butter
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 cup flour
2 cup milk
1 cup cheese
In pan, bring broth and broccoli to boil. Simmer until tender. Do not drain.
Meanwhile, melt butter in another pan. Saute onion til tender. Stir in flour. Add milk and stir until thickened. Add to broccoli. Stir in cheese until melted (OR serve with shredded cheese on top.) Serve immediately.
