Broccoli Cheese Soup

This is a Faerber family favorite, especially combined with bread bowls on Christmas Eve.

4 Quarts water
12 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
3 Cubes of Margarine
1 ½ cups flour
16 oz. Cheese Whiz
3 Broccoli Heads, chopped
2 cups shredded carrots
1 medium onion, chopped

Bring the water and bouillon cubes to a boil, add the broccoli and carrots. Meanwhile, add 1 tbsp of butter to a pan on medium heat and add the onion. Sauté until transparent and then add to the water. In the same pan, melt the rest of the butter and slowly add the flour, stirring it in well to reduce lumps. Once the mixture is smooth, stir it into the water, stirring constantly. Finally add, the cheese whiz and stir until the soup boils. Take off heat and let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy.
