My Grandma's Broccoli Cheese Soup
1 head of broccoli chopped (You can use stems if you want)
1 head of cauliflower chopped
1 large onion chopped
1 family size can of cream of mushroom soup
Milk - enough to fill family sized can of soup
2 pounds Velveeta cheese or American Cheese, cubed
Salt and Pepper to taste
Garlic Powder to taste
In a large pot combine broccoli, cauliflower, and onion. Fill with enough water so that the vegetables are floating. Boil until all vegetables are tender. Drain well.
Return vegetables to pot. Add cream of mushroom soup, milk, salt and pepper, and garlic powder. Stirring frequently heat to a soft boil.
Add the cheese a little at a time, stirring until each addition is melted. You will every once in awhile have to scrape the bottom of the pot. After all the cheese is added, you may have to adjust the seasoning a tad.
Makes approximately 16 cups of soup.
