Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb of fresh broccoli
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 2 tsps butter
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 12 oz low fat evaporated canned milk
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme, crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups low fat sharp cheddar chesse

Instructions

  • Heat canola oil and butter in 3qt pot. Add onions and saute until soft and translucent. Add flour, cook stirring vigorously with a wire whip for about a minute.
  • Add chicken broth, evaporated milk, bay leaf and thyme. Simmer on low until mixture starts to thicken. Watch it closely.
  • Meanwhile, wash and roughly chop broccoli, stems included and steam for about 5 minutes.
  • When mixture has thickened, add the broccoli and the cheddar cheese and heat through. At this point you may want to check the taste to see if it needs salt. I don't usually add any salt because cheese can be a little salty.

Notes

Add a salad, some crusty bread or croutons to your soup and viola! you have a great meal.
