Instuctions:

In a medium  pot whisk together the melted butter and flour over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes.Add the onions, broccoli, carots . Let them simmer on medium low for about 10 minutes until the broccoli and carrots are tender.
Slowly whisk in the half and half and vegetable  stock. Let it simmer for about 10  minutes.
Add nutmeg, salt and pepper and sharp cheddar cheese. Let the cheese melt and then serve. For a smoother soup puree it in a blender… but I love the chunks!
