Broccoli Cheddar Soup

I love making soup. I love chopping the vegetables and stirring the simmering pot. I love the leftovers. So, even though spring is just around the corner, I'm still busy making and enjoying pots of soup!

What you need:
3/4 c. onion, finely chopped
3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
3 c. chicken broth (I used fat-free)
4 1/2 c. milk (I used 1%)
3 c. fresh broccoli, chopped and cooked (I steamed ours for about 10 minutes)
3/4 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded

In a saucepan, saute the onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until smooth and bubbly (Mine never got smooth or bubbly at this stage!) Add broth and milk all at once. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Add broccoli. Simmer, stirring constantly until heated through. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese until melted.

Recipe from the Gooseberry Patch collection, "A Pinch of This, A Dash of That," attributed to Donna Nowicki.
