This is one of our favorite soups, especially with our home-grown broccoli. It's also good with cheddar cheese.
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 cups broccoli, chopped
1 teaspoon thyme
3 tablespoons flour
3 cups homemade chicken stock
1 cup cream
salt and pepper to taste
Melt butter in a saucepan. Add onions and broccoli and saute for 5-7 minutes, or until soft.
Stir in thyme and flour and cook for a few minutes. Add stock and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are soft.
Blend to desired consistency. Stir in cream and heat through.
