Broccoli Soup

My mother got this recipe from a friend and made it for me soon after I moved into our current place.  It is gooooood!  And I think it would be awesome in a bread bowl.  I'll have to try that next!

Broccoli Soup

1 1/2 lb fresh broccoli
5-6 green onions
3/4 c sliced celery
1/2 t salt
1/8 t pepper
2 cans 12 3/4 oz chicken broth
3 T butter
2 T flour
2 c 1/2&1/2
1/3 t nutmeg

In a heavy kettle combine chopped broccoli, green onions, celery, S & P, nutmeg and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil and simmer about 30 minutes.
Drain, reserve broth, puree veggies but no too fine.  Melt butter, remove from heat and add flour, stir until smooth.  Gradually add reserve broth, stirring.  Add veggies and 1/2 and 1/2.  Continue stirring until soup is hot and well blended.

Yumm!
