Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "two ways". How could this be bad, it's basically broccoli and cheese in soup form. Since I use my own chicken broth, it needed some salt but other than that, this was delicious.

  2. 1 Onion
  3. 1 lb Broccoli Frozen
  4. 8 Cups Chicken Broth
  5. 1 lb Cheddar Cheese
  6. 2 Cups Milk
  7. 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  8. 2/3 Cup Cornstarch
  9. 1 Cup Water
