1 lb Broccoli - fresh
4 Cups chicken broth
2 Cups Carrots (julienned)
1/2 Cup melted butter
1 lb shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
salt n pepper

First you will saute your onion in the 2 tablespoons of butter... then set aside.
Next, combine your 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup butter and whisk over a md heat for about 3 minutes.
You will then slowly add the half n half, while stirring constantly.
Next, keep stirring and add the chicken broth.
Simmer for about 20 minutes - stirring occasionally.
Now add the broccoli, carrots and onion. Cook on low heat for 20 minutes or til the veggies are tender.
Next you will pour the soup into a blender to puree.
When you are done, place the soup into a crockpot on a low setting.
Stir the cheese into the mixture until well blended.
Add a dash of nutmeg and salt n pepper to taste right befor serving.
Who needs Panera.... this stuff is the BOMB DIGGITY!
