  1. In a large pot over medium heat, simmer the broccoli in the broth for 15 minutes. In a separate skillet over medium heat, melt the butter or margarine, add the onions and saute for 5 minutes, or to desired tenderness.
  2. Add the flour to the onions and stir well, forming a pasty substance. Gradually add the milk and stir until thick. Add this mixture to the broccoli mixture in the pot and stir well. Then add the cheese, stirring until melted. Finally, add the pepper. (Note: Be careful not to let the soup boil, or the cheese will break down.)

Such a great recipe! I have also substituted two cans of cheddar cheese soup for the Velveeta in a worked great! We keep making this one.

This was wonderful! I did add a couple cloves of minced garlic and pureed some of the broccoli and put it back in the soup. My whole family loved this recipe!!! Definitely a keeper!
