Directions

First simmer the broccoli in the broth for 15 minutes or until it becomes tender. Add the peas and simmer for everything for 5 minutes longer just to cook everything through.
Then, when the vegetables are tender, puree the mixture (vegetables and liquid) through a blender. (If you puree it with a food processor or a blender, pass the puree through a sieve to remove any tough bits.)
In a clean saucepan, heat the butter and add the flour and cook for a few seconds.
Then, whisk in the strained puree, and bring it to a boil and simmer it for 10 minutes making sure to stir on occasion to make sure the flour does not stick to the bottom of the saucepan. Then, gradually add milk and adjust it to the texture you like. Bring the liquid to a little under a boil. Then season the soup to taste with salt and pepper. Finally, garnish the soup with chives.
Serve!
