This soup is delicious and easy to prepare. I've been making it for years and it is still one of my favorite recipes.
- Cut broccoli into 1/2 inch pieces; steam in 1/2 cup water until tender; do no drain-set broccoli aside.
- Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat; add flour and stir to make a roux; cook for 2 to 4 minutes.
- Add chicken stock to roux while stirring with a wire whisk; bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low; add broccoli, Half & Half, salt and pepper; heat but do not boil.
