  1. Bring water and chicken bouillon granules to a boil in a pot. Add broccoli and onion; cook at a boil until tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Combine milk, margarine, flour, and cream cheese in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir until the margarine melts and the mixture begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir Cheddar cheese into the milk mixture; cook and stir until the Cheddar melts completely.
  4. Pour the broccoli mixture into the cheese mixture in the large pot; stir well.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you desire a thicker soup, add 1/2 cup milk with 1 tablespoon cornstarch to soup.
