Broccoli Soup

13 Oct

This is a really yummy soup that I like to make every so often during the winter. It’s one of the ways that I can get my hubby to eat broccoli and like it! I love this creamy soup too!

Ingredients:
Fresh or frozen broccoli (I fill up my big cooking pot a little over halfway)
1 or 2 packagse golden onion soup mix (depends on your taste)
White sauce (butter, flour, milk)

Directions:
Cook the broccoli in your big soup pot with water. Drain the water and mash the broccoli down. Add the golden onion soup mix and 2 cups of water. While you’re doing this, make the white sauce. Use about 6 T butter and 1/3-1/2 cup flour. It should make a roux. Then add your milk to the sauce (about 4 cups). Stir the mixture over medium heat until it thickens up and then add it to the soup. Sometimes I use a bit of half and half instead of just milk to make it a bit creamier. Combine all the ingredients in your soup pot and serve. Yum, yum!

When I just recently made this, I also added potato to the soup and I really liked it. It made it a bit heartier and had good flavor. I just cut up the potatoes into bite-sized pieces, boiled them and then added them to the soup when they were soft enough. Yummy!
