Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup
1 bunch broccoli
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 Tbsp flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup broccoli water
2 cups half and half
1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups cheddar

Chop broccoli and toss in a sauce pan.  Cover with water and boil until tender.  Drain one cup of the broccoli juice in a measuring cup and set aside.   Mash up the broccoli with a potato masher.  While the broccoli is cooking melt butter in another larger pot.  Add onions and cook until they are translucent.  Add flour and whisk around.  Pour in chicken broth.  Bring to a boil and add the reserved broccoli water, half and half, worcestershire sauce, and salt.  Stir until soup becomes slightly thick.  Add broccoli and the cheese.  Dont let the cheese cook in the soup.  Just let it get heated through to melt.
