Broccoli Cheese Soup

I have a couple different ways of making broccoli soup, but here is my "comfort food" version, meaning that it's not exactly fat free. I'm not very good about measuring, I just kind of throw things in, but I guesstimated to give you an idea.

Broccoli Soup

-1/4 c. Marg
1 c. Flour
Cayenne pepper or ground red pepper (optional)
Onion powder
Garlic powder
4-5 c. Milk (depends on how thick you want it)
3-4 c. of frozen or cooked (cut up) Broccoli
3-4 oz. Cream Cheese (optional)
1-2 c. shredded Cheddar Cheese (use about 2 cups if you aren't using cream cheese)

Melt the margarine or whatever you use
Add the flour and stir

When it looks bubbly like this, then add your milk.

Add salt and pepper

Garlic powder, Onion powder, and Cayenne, and stir

Add the broccoli and cook until it starts to boil, (but don't let it boil too much since it's milk it could boil over)

It should start to look like this. Creamy.

Turn off the heat and add cream cheese

Add your cheese and stir and let the cheese melt.

Serve with cheese toast or grilled cheese sandwich.
