This soup was a pleasure to make just because it is so colorful. The fact that it has wonderful flavor does not hurt it this reviewer one bit either. Here are a few notes on the way I fixed my roux since megnbrycesmom had some trouble with hers. I put the onions in a small saucepan because I wanted them to sweat as they sauteed. I then added the flour and starch and yes it did get very pasty. But I continued to cook the roux for 2 minutes. Mind you that was not the easiest thing to do but it can be done. I proceeded to add 2 cups of milk into the pan and whisked the best I could since it was a small saucepan. I then strained that into the soup pot with a Tupperware plastic strainer since it had large holds. (Do not use a fine strainer.) Added the onions and what lumps were left back into the saucepan along with the last 2 cups of milk and just went on whisking out those lumps. This worked great! Added the cheese and now I'm enjoying a very nice bowl of broccoli soup with no floury after taste. Thanks Grammy :-) I hope this review will be helpful to those who might not be use to making a thick roux. Made for *1 2 3 Hit Wonders* game 2007
