Creamy Broccoli Soup
Ganked from the Kraft Velveeta Cheese box - copyright Kraft Foods 2012 1/4 cup chopped onions 1 tbs butter or margarine 1 tbs flour 2 cups milk 4 oz. cream cheese, cubed 1/2 lb Velveeta, cut into 1/2 inch cubes 1 pkg (10 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli, cooked, drained 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/8 tsp pepper Cook & stir onions in butter in medium saucepan on medium-high heat 3 to 5 min. or until onions are crisp-tender. Whisk in flour until well blended. Add milk, cook and stir on medium heat 2 min., stirring occasionally. Add cream cheese, cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until melted. Stir in remaining ingredients, cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. This is absolutley delicious! One could improve it by using fresh steamed broccoli instead in my opinion, and perhaps a dash more pepper (I used white pepper to blend with the light color of the soup).
