Ingredients

  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 package frozen broccoli
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 12 oz Velveeta processed cheese
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices bacon, optional

Directions

  • If using, fry bacon until crisp. Wrap in paper towel and set aside (keep warm).
  • In a large, heavy-duty saucepan coated in cooking spray, saute garlic for 1-2 minutes over medium-high heat. Once garlic begins to brown, add chicken broth and broccoli. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Whisk together milk and flour. Slowly pour into pan and stir well. Cook 5 minutes or until soup begins to thicken, stirring constantly (don't bring to a boil). Add pepper and remove from heat. Add Velveeta cheese and stir until cheese is melted.
  • Ladle into bowls and top with shredded cheese. Crumble bacon and top soup. Serve with thick, crusty bread. Top with green onion and sour cream if desired.

Notes

This is a super easy way to make cheese & broccoli soup, great for a cold day
