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!

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)

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!
