I have pictures of this yummy soup, but I left my camera at home this morning. 😦  I will update tomorrow with pictures though.

I had some broccoli in the fridge needing to be used.  And broccoli was this week’s VTV ingredient I was in luck! 🙂  I will leave you with the recipe for now, and pictures will be added tomorrow.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

 

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

11 cups water

3 cubes chicken bouillon

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into bite-size pieces I omitted the chicken.

2 heads fresh broccoli, cut into florets

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 cup light cream

3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

 

DIRECTIONS

In a 5-quart pot, melt butter over medium heat. Mix in flour, stirring constantly until a thick paste forms. Remove from pot, and set aside.

 

In same pot, combine water, bouillon cubes, chicken, broccoli, salt and pepper. Bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low, and simmer for 45 minutes.

 

 

Stir in the flour mixture a little bit at a time until soup thickens. Simmer 5 minutes.

 

Reduce heat, and stir in cream. Mix in cheese 1 cup at a time, and stir until melted.
