Ingredients

  • 1 T melted butter
  • 1/4 medium white onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 1/2 cup carrot julienned
  • 8 oz grated medium cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Saut√© chopped onion in 1 T melted butter, set aside.
  • In a large pot whisk together the melted butter and flour over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Slowly whisk in half and half and chicken stock. Let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Add broccoli, carrots, and onions. Let them simmer on medium low for about 25 minutes - until the broccoli and carrots are tender.
  • Add salt, pepper and cheese. Let the cheese melt and then serve.
  • For a smoother texture you can puree it in a blender, but personally I think it's better chunky!
