Broccoli Cheese Soup (McCartneys)

This came from our local McCartneys supermarket, a company that was in Oklahoma when I was. It was a good supermarket, great service, and all items packed by store employees into your bags. Then you drove around to where all you had to do was open your trunk and they would put the bags into your trunk and slam the lid. Supermarkets had very good service in Oklahoma, but this was the only one that went as far as this.

1 pound broccoli
2 tablespoons margarine
¼ cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon flour
2 cups milk
2 cups cottage cheese
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
¼ teaspoon dried marjoram
¼ teaspoon salt
a dash of ground black pepper

Trim and clean broccoli, dividing into stalks and florets. Peel the hard outer skin of the broccoli stalks and cut in small pieces. In saucepan, cook stalks and florets in a small amount of water, covered, until tender; drain.

In large saucepan melt margarine. Cook onions until tender, about 3 min. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk, and cook, stirring constantly until slightly thickened. Add cheese, seasonings, and broccoli stalk pieces. Mix in blender until smooth. Return to saucepan. Add broccoli florets and heat through.
