Creamy Broccoli Soup

After Mom and I talked about this soup when she brought the Chicken Noodle, she waited a few days and made a batch (YAY)! Growing up at home, I loved it when she made this soup--it was by far my favorite meal. I would eat more than I could handle and make myself miserable...because I knew it would be a while before she made it again. I'm sorry to say THAT hasn't changed. Ugh.

This may be the soup that made me a soup lover. I have to share!

Creamy Broccoli Soup

4 medium carrots, cut in narrow, 1 inch strips

2 stalks celery, finely chopped

1 1/2 cups broccoli, finely chopped

1 cup cauliflower, finely chopped

1 1/2 cups water, salted

1 10 3/4 ounce can chicken broth

2 1/4 cups milk

3 T flour

1 1/2 cup ham, diced

1 1/4 cups Velveeta, diced

1 T butter

parsley, chopped

Cook vegetables in water until crisp (start with carrots and celery, then broccoli and cauliflower). Heat broth and 1 1/2 cups milk in large saucepan. Blend flour and remainder of milk until smooth. Add ham and cheese. When cheese has melted, add cooked, undrained vegetables. Add butter and parsley.
