Broccoli Cheese Soup

This yummy soup is the perfect comfort food for a dreary winter day!  Ready to eat in just 15-20 minutes too!


1/2 block of Velvetta cheese (1 lb), cubbed (the reduced fat kind works too)
10 oz frozen bag of broccoli, thawed (this can be accomplished just by running under hot water; I'd also advise chopping up any large pieces of broccoli) 
1 small-medium sized onion, chopped
2 1/2 cups milk
2 Tbs flour
2 Tbs butter or margarine


1.  Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat.  Add onion and cook until translucent.

2.  Add flour to the onion and stir well.

3.  Gradually add milk to the pan, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly.

4.  Bring milk to a boil, then reduce to medium low.

5.  Add broccoli and cheese.  Stir until cheese is completed melted.
