Cream of Broccoli Soup

I am really proud of myself because I have only made homemade chicken noodle soup once before and I am not a big soup maker. So tonight I made homemade cream of broccoli soup. You have to try this recipe it was soooo GOOD!

Forgot to take a picture of my soup, but this is what it looked like.

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp margarine
  • medium chopped onion
  • 2tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of heavy cream*
  • 1 cup of nonfat milk
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups of broccoli
  • dash of oregano
  • pinch of ginger
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Half a bag of mild cheddar

Directions

  1. Heat the butter in a nonstick pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Raise the heat to medium and stir in the flour, and seasoning and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add milk and broth and cook for 8 minutes.
  4. Add broccoli and cheese. Cook for 6 minutes.
  5. Puree the mixture in the blender.  Make sure you only fill the blender half way and do it a couple of times.

Makes 5 1 cup servings.

    *To make it healthier you can use 2 % milk instead of heavy cream.
