From March 18, 2005:  I love broccoli cheese soup and have tried many recipes over the years. This one is by far the easiest and best tasting recipe i have tried. Oh, and it’s done in less than 10 minutes. Feel free to add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the soup to give it a little kick.

I’m thinking that this soup would work well with cauliflower too. I’m going to try it instead of broccoli next time I make it because I also love cauliflower cheese soup. Brussel sprouts would also be good in this soup.  I’ll have to try that too.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

1 (10 oz.) box frozen chopped broccoli
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
3 cups milk (or more)
salt to taste
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Cook broccoli according to package directions (I did it in the microwave).  In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and then add the 2 tablespoons of flour, whisk 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk and salt until smooth and bubbling.  Whisk in grated cheese until melted and smooth.  If the soup is too thick, whisk in a little more milk until you get the consistency you like.  Add broccoli and bring back up to desired temperature.
