Ingredients

    Cooking spray
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    1 (16-ounce) package broccoli florets
    2 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    8 ounces light processed cheese, cubed (such as Velveeta Light)

Heat a large nonstick saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; saute 3 minutes or until tender. Add broth and broccoli. Bring broccoli mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook 10 minutes.
Combine milk and flour, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add milk mixture to broccoli mixture. Cook 5 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring constantly. Stir in pepper. Remove from heat; add cheese, stirring until cheese melts.

Place one-third of the soup in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Return pureed soup mixture to pan.
