DIRECTIONS

  • Combine broth, water, broccoli and onion (carrots if using) and bring to a boil in a large saucepan.
  • Reduce heat to simmer for 15 minute.
  • (if you choose you can puree 1/2 or all of soup mixture at this point in a blender) I do 1/2 as I like the chunks of broccoli in my sup.
  • Slowly add evaporated milk to soup mixture or med.-low heat stirring as you add. Add pepper and cheese.
  • Let cool a few minutes then serve.
  • add additional pepper to taste.
  • this is good as a left over as well.
