  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cups carrots, julienned
  • 1/4 cup flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 3 cups broccoli florets, chopped in bite size pieces
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 8 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated, (from a block of cheese not the packaged pre-shredded type)


  • Melt the butter in a heavy bottom soup pot or Dutch oven.
  • Add the onions and carrots, salting lightly, and saute for about 4 - 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent and the carrots are cooked but still a little firm.
  • Next add in the minced garlic and cook for another 30 seconds, stirring
  • Sprinkle the flour over the sauteed carrots, onions and garlic and stir. Saute for about 1 minute.
  • Whisk in the broth until blended and stir in the half and half, broccoli, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper and bring to a simmer stirring regularly.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 6 to 8 minutes stirring occasionally until the broccoli is tender.
  • Turn heat to low and "SPRINKLE" (NOT one big clump) the freshly grated cheddar cheese into the soup and stir until melted and mixed in the soup.
  • When serving, grate a little extra cheddar cheese on top to garnish.
