In a saucepan bring the water and bouillon cube to a boil. Add the broccoli and carrot. Cook according to the broccoli package directions, and remove from the heat. Do not drain. In a separate saucepan melt the butter and slowly stir in the flour.

I rarely buy soup mixes. However, when the local Hostess Store closed I found these for .89 and they make 4 cups.

Have you ever eaten a good soup at a restaurant like McAlisters or Panera Bread, only to wish you had the recipe for the soup at home? Well, this recipe is for those of us who love Broccoli Cheese Soup. It's fairly simple, and tastes great.

EasyInstructionsThings You'll Need:
2 tbsp onions
2tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
2 c. milk
1 c. cheeese (Cheddar or Cheddar/American)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 1/2 c boiling water
1 (10 oz) pkg. frozen chopped broccoli
Step 1Saute the onion in butter and cook the onion until it begins to brown. This may take about 10-15 minutes depending on how high you have your stove set.

Step 2Add the flour to the onion and butter.

Step 3Add the milk, cheese, salt, and pepper to the flour, onion, and butter mixture. **Use a whisk to get the lumps (made from the flour and onion) out of the sauce.**

Step 4Put the chicken bouillon cubes into the boiling water. Allow them to dissolve.

Step 5Cook broccoli in the bouillon and water mixture until tender.

Step 6Add the broccoli (water and all) to the cheese sauce. Stir continuously for 2-3 minutes, or until you are ready to serve it.
good luck.

I've never had their Broccoli Cheese Soup either but you might like this one that I came up with a few years ago ;-) If you don't like celery just add the equivalent of broccoli instead :-) You can save this recipe by right clicking on the imagine and 'save as'. I don't remember what program I originally created this on ;-) LOL!

My son gave me a slow cooker with a stirring attachment, and I love to play with my new toy. I've made this soup on the stove top, but I don't want to stand over it for 40 minutes, stirring, but it's great in the slow cooker.
