Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoon butter unsalted
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 2-4 cups vegetable broth add as needed
  • 3 cups fresh broccoli chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups carrot julienned
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to a medium skillet over medium heat.
  2. Once butter has melted, add diced onion and sauté for about 3-4 minutes, until translucent. Stir a few times. Once done, remove skillet from heat and set aside.
  3. Place a medium heavy bottom pot or dutch over medium heat.
  4. Once the pot is warm, add 4 tablespoons of butter and melt. Once melted, add the flour and cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Stir constantly with a whisk. While still whisking, add the chicken broth. Stir to combine.
  5. Add the heavy cream, stir to combine and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  6. Add the broccoli, carrots and the cooked onion. Add nutmeg. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook over low heat 20-25 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
