Ingredients

Cooking spray
1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat-free, less-sodium veggie broth
1 (16-ounce) package broccoli florets
2 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
8 ounces light processed cheese, cubed (such as Velveeta Light)


Heat a large nonstick saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat.


Add onion and garlic; saute 3 minutes or until tender.


Add broth and broccoli. Bring broccoli mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.


Reduce heat to medium; cook 10 minutes.



Combine milk and flour, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add milk mixture to broccoli mixture. Cook 5 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring constantly. Stir in pepper.



Remove from heat; add cheese, stirring until cheese melts.


Place one-third of the soup in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Return pureed soup mixture to pan.



Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups)
