Broccoli Soup

Several ladies that visit my blog has asked for this soup recipe and I finally got around to taking a few pics and thought I'd share it with you!
It tastes heavenly, especially on a cool Fall evening!

Start with boiling broccoli and chicken bouillon cubes.  ( Recipe is at the end of post.)
The brown color you see is the bouillon cubes dissolving.

Velveeta Cheese cubed.

Half & Half and whole milk.

Flour mixed with milk.

Add to the cooking pot.

Cook on low till thickened.

Warm some French or Sourdough bread and ENJOY!

Soooo Yummy!

Broccoli Soup:  Serves 4 to 6

1 c. water
1 10 oz. of  broccoli
2 c. milk
1/2 c. flour

Mix flour & milk and add to mixture.

I need to try this because my hubby loves broccoli and cheese soup when we're at Paneras. This looks really easy. I love how you tell us the "brown" is the bouillon cubes dissolving! I use one cube when I make my mac and cheese sauce and while the cube is dissolving it looks so unpleasant in the yummy cheese sauce. Hope you have a nice weekend!
