  1. Combine broccoli, potatoes, celery, carrots, and onion in a large stockpot, pour enough water over the vegetable mixture to cover. Add bouillon cubes to the pot. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, cook at a simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

  2. While vegetables simmer, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir flour into melted butter to incorporate. Slowly stir milk into the butter mixture, cooking and stirring until you have a thick sauce, 5 to 10 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat under vegetables to low. Stir sauce into vegetable mixture to combine with the liquid smoothly. Add cheese in small amounts, allowing each addition to melt into the soup before adding the next. Serve hot.

Recipe Note

This is from a dear old friend when I first got married 30 some years ago. She's a Finlander from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan so it may be familiar to some of you. We needed lots of warm soup living in the cold northern region!
