Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup

I adore soup but can only bring myself to eat it during the fall and winter here in Florida.

Tonight for dinner I made stuffed chicken breasts, with Broccoli and cheese soup and biscuits.

Here is the recipe for the soup (ITS AMAZING)

2 cups chicken broth
1 small white onion, diced finely
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter
1 teaspoon greek seasoning
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 small package on steamable Broccoli & Cheese


~ Simmer chicken broth and chopped onion for 15 minutes in a covered small saucepan, until onions are soft.
~ Heat milk in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
~ In a separate stockpot, melt butter then add flour, and greek seasoning.
~ Cook together, stirring constantly until all flour is gone, then whisk in warmed milk.
~ Stir and heat together on medium heat until soup starts to thicken
~ Add warmed chicken broth and continue to stir until well blended
~ Add cheeses and stir until completely melted.
~ Stir in broccoli package.
~ Add salt and pepper to taste, if needed.
~ Serve with fresh biscuits!
