Cream of Broccoli Soup

Hello friends (I am sooo happy we have upgraded from classmates!).I have been pretty much living off of this recipe for the past month or so, which means it will not kill you for sure! Best of all, it only takes about 20 minutes...

For this fine recipe you will need:

  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 large stalk celery, chopped
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • To make it a little interesting:
  • 3 pounds of weed
  • 1 ounce of cough-syrup
  • 3 books on micro and macro economics
  • 3 hairs from Florez-Malagon, PhD.

You then must follow these directions to the letter, or else bad things will happen...

  1. In a medium-sized cooking pot, add water and broccoli florets and bring to boil; reduce heat and cook for about 3 minutes. Drain, reserving all of the water.
  2. In a food processor or blender, process half the cooked broccoli until fairly smooth. Chop remaining broccoli and set aside.
  3. In a heavy-bottomed cooking pot, melt butter or margarine, add onion and celery and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until soft. Stir in flour; cook, stirring constantly for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add reserved water and chicken bouillon granules, and bring to boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium; simmer, stirring constantly until thickened.
  4. Stir in milk, nutmeg, pepper, and processed and chopped broccoli, and heat through. Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve garnished with grated cheddar cheese.
  5. In a parallel universe, add Florez's hair and the economics books in boiling water and see which item lasts longer. Legend has it that if the hair wins, the Multitude shall rise against the Empire...
