Broccoli Cheese Soup

I made this last night for supper and it was so good. The worcestershire sauce gives it a little different taste. Even my kids really liked it!

1 C water

1 Chicken Bullion cube

1 (10oz) pkg frozen broccoli

1 med carrot, grated

3 Tbsp butter

4 Tbsp flour

3 C milk

1 lb grated cheese

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 Tbsp minced onion flakes

1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

salt and pepper to taste

Heat water and bouillon cube to a boil. Add broccoli and carrot. Cook according to package directions and remove from heat. Do not drain. In separate saucepan make a white sauce by melting butter and slowly stirring in flour. Continue stirring while gradually adding milk. Stir cheese, chicken soup, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Add broccoli-carrot mixture to white sauce mixture and cook over medium to low heat until desired degree of thickness. Yield 6-8 servings.
