      This is a wee bit different from my other recipe (since it is for two servings), hence the name…
      Broccoli Cheese Soup II
      3 tbs butter
      1 onion, chopped
      1.5 tbs all-purpose flour
      1 cup half and half (or whole milk)
      1 cup vegetable broth
      1/5-1 lb fresh broccoli florets
      1/2 cup diced carrots
      1/2 tsp kosher salt
      1/2 tsp black pepper
      1 dash hot sauce (optional)
      1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (low fat is okay)
      Heat butter in a large saucepan or dutch oven over medium heat.
      Add onions and saute 3 to 5 min, until softened.
      Sprinkle flour evenly over onions and stir vigorously, 2 to 3 min, until no lumps appear and raw flour taste is cooked off.
      Add the half and half and vegetable broth.

      Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 to 20 minutes.
      Add the broccoli and carrots. Cook 15 to 20 min until vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork.
      Add salt, pepper, hot sauce and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted.
      Serve warm.

      2 healthy servings or 4 if serving with crusty bread or a salad
