Getting them to eat their vegetables just got easier with this comfort food.

What You Need
     4 cups chicken broth
     2 to 2-1/2 pounds fresh broccoli spears, cut into florets
     1/2 cup chopped green onions

     1 cup half-and-half cream

Lets Make It!     In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil; add broccoli. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. In a small skillet, sauté onions in oil until tender; stir into broth. Remove from heat; cool 10-15 minutes. Puree in small batches in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return all to the saucepan; set aside. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Slowly add cream, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in broccoli mixture. Return to the heat; cook over medium until heated through, stirring occasionally.
