Directions

1
Melt the Hiland Butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the onions. Cook the onions for 3 to 4 minutes and then sprinkle the flour over the top. Stir to combine and cook for 1 minute or so.


2
Pour in the Hiland Milk and Hiland Half-and-Half.


3
Add the nutmeg, the broccoli, a small dash of salt and plenty of black pepper.


4
Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until the broccoli is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.


5
Stir in the Hiland Cheese and allow to melt.


6
Taste the seasonings and adjust if needed.


7
Serve as is, mash with a potato masher to break up the broccoli a bit, or transfer to a blender in two batches and puree completely. (If you puree in a blender, return the soup to the heat and allow to heat back up. Splash in some chicken broth if needed for thinning.)
