Broccoli cheese soup 2

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
16 ounces Chicken broth
1 medium Broccoli -- (3 cups
\N \N Chopped)
½ cup Celery -- chopped
2 tablespoons Butter or margarine
4 tablespoons Flour
½ teaspoon Salt
\N \N Fresh ground pepper
4 cups Milk
1 cup Cheddar cheese -- shredded

In medium saucepan, bring broth, broccoli and celery to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until broccoli is tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Stir once or twice. If you want a smooth soup, puree broccoli in a blender. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper to taste; cook for 1 minute. With a whisk, add milk gradually, beating constantly to prevent lumping. Bring to a boil and add broccoli and its liquid. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Ladle into individual bowls.
