Broccoli Cheddar Soup (Vegetarian)

OK, so...vegetarian if you don't crumble a bunch of bacon on top. I couldn't resist! :-)

I made this yummy soup on Sunday when it was rainy and cold...warmed me right up! Not to mention it was super easy and fast, yet tasted like it had been simmered all day long.

Melt 6 Tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan

Throw in 1 pound frozen chopped broccoli; stir 5-6 minutes

Throw in 6 Tablespoons flour, stir to coat

Pour in 4 cups vegetable broth or stock

And 1 cup half and half plus one cup skim milk

Stir together with a pinch of salt, half teaspoon red pepper flakes and a teaspoon of worchestershire sauce

Let simmer (stir often) for about 20 minutes. It will thicken a bit. Then dump in 2.5 cups shredded cheese. Cheddar, Monterey Jack, whatever you like!

Stir until it melts (won't take long at all) and you are done!

Enjoy! I totally would have eaten this out of a bread bowl, but I couldn't find them at my grocery store! Humph!
