Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons flour

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • ¼

    cup onion, chopped

  • 1

    quart chicken broth

  • 8

    cups broccoli florets I throw in frozen also

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 3

    tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1

    cups heavy cream

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in medium sized stock pot, and saute onion until tender. Add broccoli and broth, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. 2. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot. 3. In small saucepan, over medium-heat melt 3 tablespoons butter, stir in flour and add milk. Stir until thick and bubbly, and add to soup. Season with pepper and serve.
