Cheesy Broccoli Chowder

Broccoli and Cheese, they just go together. Warm and tempting this soup is just calling for a cool evening to be served.

  • 2 cups Boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons Chicken Bouillon Paste
  • 2 cups Freeze Dried Broccoli
  • 1 Tablespoon Dehydrated Onion
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Pepper
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • ¼ cup Flour
  • 2 cups Milk*
  • ½ cup Powdered Cheese Sauce**
  • 1 cup Warm Water**
In a large pot bring water to boil. Add bouillon paste, broccoli, onion, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer 10 min. Do not drain.
Meanwhile mix warm water and powdered cheese sauce together in a small bowl. Whisk throughly. Set aside.
Make a white sauce with margarine, flour and milk. Add cheese sauce to white sauce stirring until blended. Add to vegetables. Heat – DO NOT BOIL.
*Can you use powdered milk in this recipe? I sure did. I just mix up a large pitcher of it according to the directions on my package and keep it in the fridge. Then I add cup for cup the milk called in every recipe I cook.
**1 cup fresh shredded cheddar cheese can be substituted for the cheese sauce powder + the warm water. Just add the shredded cheddar right into the white sauce and stir until melted.
