Ingredients

  • 4 cups water

  • 4 cups broccoli florets

  • 2 tablespoons margarine

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 large stalk celery, chopped

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder

  • 2 ½ cups whole milk

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
