It's finally getting cold enough for some homemade soups. I am ISO of some great new soup recipes. I would love a good potato recipe if anyone has one.

My dh makes cream of broccoli soup.
Here's the recipe:

2 tablespoons butter
medium chopped onion
1 chopped celery stalk
3 cups chicken broth (we tend to use boillion paste)
1 head of broccoli (florets)
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
pepper to taste

1 Melt 2 tablespoons butter in medium sized pot, and saute onion and celery until tender.

2 Add broccoli and broth, cover and simmer. Puree soup and return to heat.

3 In small saucepan, over medium-heat melt 3 tablespoons butter, stir in flour and add milk. Whisk continuously until a nice consistency and add it to the broccoli and broth mix. Whisk some more. Add pepper and salt to taste.

Super yummy. Hubby is making it tonight. :)

You can always add more butter, milk, flour, salt, pepper to get it to the texture that you want. Can add garlic or potatoes too. For a twist, add some velveeta for broccoli and cheese soup.
