• 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 4 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 cups broccoli florets


In a large pot over medium high heat, combine the broth, water, half-and-half, cheese, flour, onion flakes and ground black pepper. Whisk all together to break up any lumps.

Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Stir in the broccoli and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until broccoli is tender.
