Broccoli  and Cheese Soup

Cooking spray
1 cup onions, chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
3 cups chicken broth(can substitute vegetable broth)
1 (16 oz) package broccoli florets
2 ½  cups milk
1/3 cup flour
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz Velveeta cheese, cubed

Spray soup pot with cooking spray over medium heat.
Add onions and garlic and saute for 3-4 minutes.
Add broth and broccoli.
Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer.
Stir and cook for 10-15 minutes.
Combine the milk and flour and whisk until blended.
Add milk mixture, cook 5-8 minutes or until slightly thick.
Stir in salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and add cheese, stirring until it melts.
Either put part in blender and process or use an immersion
     blender and pureed mixture.   Serves 6


½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon basil

Can double the amount of Velveeta cheese if you like it really cheesy.

 Instead of Velveeta cheese, you can use sharp cheddar. 

 Can add some cauliflower florets.

 Can also add a cup of chopped ham for a richer taste.

 Experimenting is the name of the game!
