Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

The best Broccoli and Cheddar Soup ever. Perfect for those cold nights at home.

1 lb. broccoli cut into bite size pieces
4 Tablespoons of butter
2 large carrots, finely diced
2 medium chopped onions
8 Cups chicken broth
1/2 Cup flour
3 Cups milk
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4-5 Cups cheddar cheese

In the butter saute the onion and carrot until soft. Add two cups of the broth and cook until onions and carrots are very soft. Using a hand mixer, blend till semi-smooth. Add the broccoli and the remaining broth. Whisk the flour and milk together in a separate bowl, then stir into the soup. Add the seasonings. After the broccoli has cooked down to the doneness that you like, add the cheese, but DO NOT bring the soup to a boil after adding the cheese or it will curdle. Serve.
