Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients


    2 tablespoons butter
    1 onion, chopped
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    3 cups chicken broth
    8 cups broccoli florets
    3 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups milk
    ground black pepper to taste


Directions

1.Melt 2 tablespoons butter in medium sized stock pot, and saute onion and celery until tender. Add broccoli and broth, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
2.Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.
3.In small saucepan, over medium-heat melt 3 tablespoons butter, stir in flour and add milk. Stir until thick and bubbly, and add to soup. Season with pepper and serve.
