Quick, awesome Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cheese Soup
  • half a 16 oz bag frozen, chopped broccoli (or fresh...just your own preference)
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • half of an onion chopped very fine
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 2 cans chicken broth
  • remaining water from your defrosted/steamed broccoli (about 1 cup-it doesn't much matter)
  • 1 t. Worcestershire sauce
  • 8oz Velveeta cheese cut into cubes
  • 1 cup milk, or as much needed to get desired thickness of soup
  1. In a large pot steam broccoli until desired tenderness, or microwave frozen broccoli, saving water either way you do it.
  2. While broccoli is steaming, saute onions in butter.
  3. When onions are translucent add your flour and cook until flour starts to brown.
  4. Add one can of chicken broth and stir until smooth, repeat with the second can of broth, bring to a boil. Add broccoli water.
  5. Reduce heat and add Worcestershire sauce, cheese and milk. Mix until smooth and creamy. Add your steamed broccoli and serve.
We all ate this soup and loved it! I had some leftover Rotisserie Chicken from Sam's Club so I just threw that in, but it would be great with or without chicken. A keeper! The measurements of everything are really not's just as much cheese/broccoli/liquid as you prefer.
