Baked Potato and Broccoli Soup

This is a recipe from myrecipes.com

You can look at the link to see their recipe. I modify it a little since I'm a vegetarian. Nestie mrspresley also has a potato soup recipe just like this!

It is SUPER yummy.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 (14 ounce) cans vegetarian vegetable broth

3 cups peeled, cubed potato (about 1 1/4 pounds)

2 cups broccoli florets, chopped (I just bought the frozen kind-less work)

1 small onion, chopped

1 1/4 cups milk

Shredded 2% reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese (I bought the pre-shredded bagged kind)

7 teaspoons chopped green onions (optional)

1 or 2 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS
Whisk together flour and 1/3 cup broth until smooth. Set aside.

Combine remaining broth and next 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven or large stock pot.

Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Gradually stir in flour mixture. Cook, stirring often, 5 minutes.

Stir in milk and 8 ounces shredded cheese.

Cook mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until cheese melts.

Top each serving with green onions or more cheese!
