Homemade Cream of Broccoli Soup

6 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
4 cups broccoli florets, cut into bite sized pieces (fresh or frozen)
6 cups chicken broth (or you can use the 49 1/2 oz can)
3/4 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the 6 T. butter. Add in the flour and stir until blended; do not brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt the 2 T. butter. Add onion; cook until tender. Add chopped broccoli florets, cook and stir about 6 minutes. Add the chicken broth. Increase the heat at this point and bring to a boil. Whisking constantly, add the flour mixture. Cook and stir until soup is thickened and bubbly.
Lastly, add in the salt, pepper, and half & half. Heat through and serve hot. Note: The soup will thicken upon standing.
You can substitute cauliflower or broccoflower in place of the broccoli.
