Broccolli and Cheese Soup

This is soo scrumptious! And it’s really good with some crusty french bread.

cooking spray
1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat-free, less sodium chicken broth
1 (16 oz) package broccoli florets
2 -1/2 cups 2% reduced -fat milk
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
8 oz. light processed cheese, cubed (such as velveeta light)

Heat a large nonstick saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; saute 3 minutes or until tender. Add broth and broccoli. Bring broccoli mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to medium; cook 10 minutes.
Combine milk and flour, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add milk mixture to broccoli mixture. Cook 5 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring constantly. Stir in pepper. Remove from heat; add cheese, stirring until cheese melts.
Place one-third of the soup in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Return pureed soup mixture to pan.
