Cheesy Broccoli Soup

 Broccoli Cheese Soup - original recipe was found at Allrecipes.  I made just a couple changes.

1 cup onion, diced
6 Tbsp margarine
1/3 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste (I did not use much)
4 cups skim milk
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups broccoli, diced
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 pound Velveeta (I used the 2 % milk variety)

In a stock pot, saute the onions in the butter on medium heat. Add the flour, salt and peppr and stir to make a paste. Add the milk slowly, stirring with a whisk. Cook on medium high until bubbly and thick, stir often to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Broccoli and celery boiling in chicken broth.
Meanwhile, in a smaller pan, bring the chicken broth to a boil.  Add the celery and broccoli.  Cook about 5 minutes or until tender.  

 Add the broccoli and celery to the milk mixture.  Mix well.
Cut the Velveeta into cubes and add to the mixture.  Stir constantly to prevent sticking.  Heat until the cheese is all melted. 

This recipe made about 8 one-cup servings.
