Great Lunch Option

Hubby requested a broccoli cheese soup for lunch over Labor Day weekend so I went to my trusted friend, AllRecipes.

Broccoli Cheese Soup
(this soup was great! maybe even better the second day!!) Recipes makes 6 servings.
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 1 (1 pound) loaf processed cheese food, cubed
  • 1 cup milk (recipe calls for milk but after reading reviews I used 1/2 and 1/2)
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  1. In a stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter until softened. Stir in broccoli, and cover with 1 and 1/2 cans of the chicken broth (reserve 1/2 can for later). Simmer until broccoli is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat, and stir in cheese cubes until melted. Mix in milk (or 1/2 and 1/2) and garlic powder.
  3. In a small bowl, stir cornstarch into remaining 1/2 can of chicken broth until dissolved. Stir into soup; cook, stirring frequently, until thick.
