Take fresh Broccoli and cut it into small equal sized florets. Take medium sized onion and cut it into long, thin slices. Now take a pan with some water and put the Broccoli florets and onion slices into it and boil them for around 3-4 minutes.

Put the butter in the pan and heat it till it melts. Now add all purpose flour in the butter and stir well. Note that, the amount of butter and all purpose flour should be equal.

Now add some vegetable stock into the mixture to bring it to a required consistency. After a single boil, add milk and boil again.

After the mixture has come to a good boil, add the vegetables into it and boil for around 5 minutes.

Now add salt and black pepper to the mixture.

Finally add shredded cheese to the soup and stir it well till it melts.

If the soup seems to be thick add some more vegetable stock into it and boil till it reaches the required consistency.
