Creamy Broccoli Soup

I distinctly remember the first time I ate broccoli without gagging. I was in college. Now, I love it and am quietly proud of my children when they eat it willingly. We love simple steamed broccoli and slightly cooked broccoli in a stir-fry but those don't really require "recipes". This is a soup that we love. Make it before the weather actually turns to a reliable Spring!


2 cups chicken broth
2 1/2 cups fresh broccoli
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste


1. Bring broth to a boil. Add broccoli and onion. Cook for five minutes, or until broccoli is tender.
2. In a separate bowl, slowly add milk to flour, and mix until well blended.
3. Stir flour mixture into broth mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until soup is thick and bubbly. Add cheese if desired; stir until melted. Add seasonings and serve.
