Broccoli Cheese Soup V
Very good starter recipe. Some very good suggestions: I only used 1/2 a white onion, but added 2 cloves garlic. I also used real cheddar, and a bit of pepperjack cheese, to give it a little pep. A lot of people don't like using real cheese because they think it is grainy, but if you cook it properly, it is just as smooth, and tastes better.
When making the rue (after sauteing the onions and garlic), slowly whisk in the flour, to make a smooth rue. Them temper it (aka, slowly add a LITTLE bit of milk at a time) until incorporated. Then cook over a very ow heat for about 15-20 minutes until thick. After you add the milk mixture to the broccoli, take it off the heat and slowly add you cheese, never letting it boil. Super smooth, creamy, and REAL.
