Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 Cups Water
    1 Package (10oz) Broccoli (more if desired)
    1tsp Wylers Chicken Boullion
    1 Tbs Basil
    2 tsp Oregano
    1 tsp Garlic Powder
    1tsp Onion Powder
    2 Tbs Olive Oil
    1/2 Cup Milk
    1/2 Cup Shredded Low Fat Cheddar Cheese
    2 Tbs Cornstarch (Dissolved in 2 Tbs cool water)

Tips

*For lower sodium, I might try substituting 4 cups low sodium chicken broth instead of the water and boullion

*The milk is entirely for the creamy color only. You may omit if you like, but the added nutrition doesn't hurt either. Each serving is only 143 calories as is. Omitting it might help low-carb dieters.


Directions

1. Place First 8 ingredients into a medium saucepan over med-high heat. Stir well. Bring to a boil
2. Stir to ensure all boullion is dissolved.
3. Lower heat to a simmer. Continue cooking until broccoli is tender. Bring heat to low-med
4. Add cornstarch/water mixture, stir and bring to a boil. Lower again to a simmer.
5. Pour in milk and cheese. Stir continuously until all cheese is melted and mixed in.
6. Remove from heat. Let stand a short while to thicken. Stir again. Serve.
