recipe began. I gathered ideas from recipes I read and videos I watched online and this is what I came up with.
1 medium onion chopped (others use half)
6 tbsp melted butter (others use 4 tbsp)
1/4 cup flour (I accidentally used 1/3 cup)
2 cups half and half cream
2 cups chicken stock
1 lb fresh broccoli (others use 1/2 lb)
1 cup julienned carrots
1/4 tsp nutmeg
8 ounces grated mild cheddar cheese (others use sharp)
Sauté onion in 2 tbsp butter then set aside.
Using whisk stir constantly.
Simmer 20 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste. The soup should have thickened by now.
Add cheese and stir until melted and blended.
