Broccoli Cheese Soup For the Soul

It’s cold outside and you know perfectly well that a hot bowl of soup beats a pair of fleece mittens–any dang day. And this creamy, cheesy number will keep you toasty warm till Spring…well, nearly. You may just want to have it for breakfast too. Then you won’t need a coat all day long. Ha ha.

Yeah, it’s that good. Thanks, April!

Ingredients:

2 cubes butter

14 cups water

12 chicken bouillon cubes–4Tbsps bouillon powder

1½ cups flour

16 oz cheese whiz or 1 lb velveeta (I put in twice this)

4 cups fresh broccoli chopped

1 Tbsp onion flakes

salt to taste

Directions:

Boil water and bouillon. Cut broccoli in to small pieces, add to water. When broccoli is nearly done, melt butter in pan, stir in flour, then add hot soup stock to dilute (slowly with a wire whisk to keep smooth, or use blender). Add to soup. Stir until thickened. Remove from heat, add cheese. Stir until melted and smooth. Garnish with shredded cheddar–because it needs MORE cheese. HA!

Try this lovliness with tortilla chips, French bread or pretzels. It’s amazing.
