After Saturday's rain in Northwest Arkansas, there's a definite feeling of fall on the farm. I'm thinking about getting 'souped up' on Monday with a recipe I found on the Dairy Makes Sense website.
Cheesy Broccoli Potato Soup
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup onion,chopped
1/2 cup flour
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups low-fat milk
1 (16-oz) package frozen chopped broccoli
2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
11/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender. Add flour and stir until blended. Gradually stir in broth. Heat until slightly thickened. Add milk,
broccoli and potatoes. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes or until broccoli and potatoes are tender. Stir in cheese and seasonings.
