Broccoli Cheese Soup
1 1/2 lbs Fresh Broccoli (cut into bite sized pieces)
2 Cups Water (can use chicken stock)
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
3 Tablespoons cornstarch Mixed with 1/2 Cup Cold Water.
1 Pint Half & Half
1 lb Velveeta cheese, Cubed (yes, I know.. its evil, it's processed, it's un-naturally yellow, It has a shelf-life longer than Twinkies, But it works the best)
Steam Broccoli Till Tender-crisp
Place half-and-half and water in a double boiler. (If you don't have a double broiler, you can use a large metal bowl sitting on top of a large pot of simmering water, This stuff burns and sticks very VERY easily... I wouldn't risk cooking it straight in a pot over heat. Been there, burned that!)
Add cheese, salt and pepper.
Heat until cheese is melted.
Mix cornstarch and water in small bowl. Stir into cheese/broccoli ,mixture in double boiler and heat over simmering water until soup thickens.
Serve with a crusty bread and a salad... PERFECTION!!!
