Broccoli Cheese Soup

3/4 c. chopped onions
1 T. butter
6 c. chicken stock
8 oz. pkg. fine egg noodles
2 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped broccoli
1/4 t. garlic powder
6 c. 2% or whole milk
2 t. coarse ground pepper
2 pkg. 8 oz. grated Velveeta cheese

You may use canned low sodium chicken broth if you like. It can also be frozen. One of the best broccoli soups around!

Saute the onions in butter. Add chicken stock and noodles. Bring to a boil; boil 3 minutes. Add frozen broccoli and garlic powder; bring to a boil breaking the broccoli with a fork until separated. Boil 3 minutes. Add milk, pepper and cheese. Cook until cheese melts on low heat making sure the soup does not boil. Stir so cheese doesn’t stick on bottom. Allow soup to sit for an hour before eating (or 30 minutes if you can’t wait!)
