Vegetable Cheese Chowder

Who doesn't love a good soup? This has got cheese and broccoli. Or, if you prefer, cauliflower.

You will need a medium to large size saucepan with a lid.

Ingredients:

1-1/4 cups frozen broccoli or cauliflower
1 medium size shredded carrot
1/2 cup water
2 cups milk
1/3 cup flour
sprinkle of pepper
1-3/4 cup chicken broth
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon dried parsley

In the pan combine the broccoli, carrot, and water.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat.
Cover and simmer about 4 minutes. Vegetables will be crisp tender.
Meanwhile, whisk together the milk, flour, and pepper.
Add to the pan and stir in the broth.
Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly.
Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese and parsley.
Cook and stir over low heat until the cheese is melted.

Serves 4.
