  1. In a large saucepan on medium high heat, saute the onions in the butter or margarine until tender. Add the flour and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until smooth. Add the milk slowly, until mixture is thick and bubbling.
  2. In a smaller saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the carrot, celery, and broccoli. Cook about 5 minutes, or until tender. Combine the broth mixture with the milk mixture and stir until fully blended.
  3. Add the cheese. Allow soup to heat over medium heat until cheese is melted. Important: DO NOT let the soup boil because the cheese will separate and curdle the soup. Serve hot and enjoy!

I added extra broccoli and omitted the carrot and celery.For color and added flavor I used chopped tiny sweet peppers( red, yellow and orange) and white pepper. We love this,will make frequently.

Very good soup. My adjustments: double the broccoli and carrots; minced garlic added to onion-butter mix. I used mostly low-sodium broth (about 2 cups) and will use only low sodium broth next ...

This soup was wonderful. I had been looking for a decent broccoli/cheese soup for a long time and this one was a winner. I decided to add some rice at the end and it was much better without it...

It may be my fault the soup did not turn out as great as expected. I swapped Velveeta with real cheddar and it did not have a great consistency. Needed some seasoning too. Still on the search fo...

This is delicious. I used a couple of different cheddar cheeses and it was really rich and creamy. A big hit at our house!

This Soup is better then restuarant Broccoli soup, I also used about 8oz shredded cheddar cheese, this one is a keeper
