Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup
By Kelly Galbraith

1 1/2 C Chicken broth
1/2 C chopped onion
1/2 C. chopped celery
1/2 C. grated carrots
2 C. chopped broccoli
2TBS butter
2T flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 C. milk
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese

In saucepan combine chicken broth, onion, celery, carrots, and broccole. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 mins until veggies are cooked.
In another saucepan (I always just add it to the veggie pot) melt butter. Blend flour and salt and pepper. Add the milk all at once. stir over heat until all flour lumps dissapear and then add veggie mixture. Add cheese. Cook until thoroughly heated and all cheese is melted.. (just a hint the carrots look like cheese...don't be fooled!!) Serves 3 or 4.

(I always double or triple the recipe, and the actual amounts of all things vary every time that I make this, but it is delicious and I have tricked Mike into thinking that it is super heathly.!!!
