Cheesy Cream of Broccoli

This cream of broccoli soup is actually a modification from my favorite cheesy onion soup. I'm finding that with a good cream of "something" soup base, you can change up the ingredients and create a bunch of different flavors.

This would be really good with asparagus, or you could swap the Velveeta for Parmesan and add blended tomatoes and basil for a creamy tomato.

I'll share if I make different versions and how they turn out.

Cheesy Cream-of-Broccoli Soup


White Sauce


4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
12 oz can evaporated milk


In a small saucepan melt butter, add flour. Cook on medium heat until you smell the flour...nutty smell.
Add milk slowly whisking each time. Set aside.


Soup


3 tbsp butter
2 sweet onions diced half inch pieces
1 tbsp chopped garlic (2 cloves)
1 cup finely diced celery
1 cup diced carrots
1 generous crown of Broccoli diced in small florets.
Lawry's seasoning salt
2 chicken or boullion cubes
1 quart chicken bone broth
8 oz Velveeta cheese cubed
white sauce above


In Dutch oven melt 3 tbsp butter. Add onions. Cook until translucent.
Add garlic, celery and carrots. Sautee’ on medium low until the carrots begin to soften.
Season with Lawry’s or your favorite seasoning salt. Add bone broth and boullion.
Heat to simmer. Add broccoli and heat until bright green and just tender.
Add Velveeta cubes, stir until melted. Then add white sauce slowly. Stir after each addition.
Let simmer on low 20 minutes stirring often.

This sounds wonderful. I make cream of mushroom, so it would make sense to make other flavors:). Sometimes a add a dash of lemon, Worcestershire, soy sauce, or Dijon, to give it that umami. Thanks for posting. I will try when broccoli comes in season. How much brocolli?

According to Stanford Medical, It's indeed the one and ONLY reason women in this country get to live 10 years longer and weigh an average of 19 KG lighter than us.

(And realistically, it is not related to genetics or some secret exercise and absolutely EVERYTHING about "how" they are eating.)

BTW, I said "HOW", not "WHAT"...
