INGREDIENTS


  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 3 cups chopped broccoli (peeled, stems included)

  • 1cup chopped celery

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 tablespoons flour

  • salt, to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper,  to taste

  • 4 cups low-fat milk (don't use skim, though)

  • 1cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated


DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, bring broth, broccoli (about 1 med. head will yield 3 cups chopped broccoli) and celery to a boil over high heat.

  • Reduce heat to medium and simmer until broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes.

  • Stir occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and stir in flour, salt and pepper; cook for 1 minute.

  • With a whisk or wooden spoon, add milk gradually, beating constantly to prevent lumping.

  • (It will thicken like paste at first; keep beating in milk to thin it.) Bring to a boil.

  • If you want a smooth soup, puree broccoli in blender.

  • Now add broccoli mixture (smooth or chunky) into large saucepan with the milk.

  • Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

  • Serve immediately.
