Cream of Broccoli Soup

This is one of my favorite soups.  Its very easy and it tastes great!
You will need:
3/4 cup water
1 package (16 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli
1 can (14.5 fluid oz.) chicken broth
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 can ( 12 fluid oz.) evaporated milk

Boil 3/4 cup water in a medium saucepan.  Add broccoli; bring to a boil.  Cook five to seven minutes or until tender; drain.

 Place half of the broccoli and all the chicken broth in food processor or blender; cover.  Process until smooth.

Melt butter in the same saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, one to two minutes or until onion is tender.  Stir in flour.  Gradually whisk in evaporated milk.  Cook, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil.

Add blended broccoli and remaining chopped broccoli.  Heat through, stirring often.

Top with finely shredded cheddar cheese, just before  serving.
