My family loves hot soups during fall and winter. We made this steaming, delicious soup for dinner and it was awesome!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/2 cup chopped celery

2 cups button mushrooms

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 to 1/2 tsp. pepper

1 1/2 cups chicken r vegetable broth

2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli

3 cups half-and-half

1-2 cups (or more) shredded cheddar cheese

In heavy-bottomed saucepan, sauté’ onions, celery, and mushrooms in butter.  Stir in flour, salt, and pepper, then gradually stir in broth.  Add broccoli, and simmer for 15 minutes.  Stir in half-and-half and cheese.  Heat on low for 10 minutes, watching carefully that it doesn’t burn.  Add more half-and-half as needed for your desired consistency of soup.  Serve with extra cheese and some home-made bread.
