Total Time:


1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 medium chopped onion
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half-and-half cream
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 pound fresh broccoli (chopped into bite size pieces)
1 cup carrot, julienned
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 ounces grated sharp Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
crusty bread


Sauté onion in butter. Set aside.

Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and add the half & half.

Add the chicken stock. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat 20-25 minutes.

Add salt and pepper. Can be puréed in a blender if you like a smooth consistency. I prefer to leave it chunky. Return to heat and add cheese. Stir in nutmeg.

Serve with crusty bread and Enjoy :).
