This recipes is so cheap! And kids tend to love cheese (at least mine do). Cheesy
2 cups chicken broth
1 (16 ounce) package frozen (thawed) or fresh chopped broccoli (cut to look like tiny trees)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3 TBSP flour
1 cup milk
1 lb Cheddar cheese
In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Add broccoli. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup liquid. Whisk in flour until blended. Add the milk and cheese. Cook over medium-low heat until cheese is melted, stirring frequently. Stir in broccoli and reserved cooking liquid.
Change It Up: You can add more vegetables to this soup, like carrots, onions, cauliflower. Or, make it cheesy cauliflower soup instead of broccoli.
Be Centsible: You can use 2 cups of water with a chicken bouillon cube in place of the chicken broth, depending on your sales.
