New Recipe: Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

My daughter loves broccoli.  It is her favorite food.  She wants to eat it for dinner every night.  I was trying to think of something new to make with it so I made her this Broccoli and Cheddar Soup.  She loved it and I hope you do to. 

1/4 cup butter
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/4 flour
3 cups milk
2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon salt
Pinch nutmeg
2 cups shredded cheddar
2 broccoli stalks, roasted (20 minutes at 400 degrees)

Melt butter over medium heat in a large pot and add onion.  Saute until softened.  Sprinkle with flour and stir for 2 minutes.  

Whisk in milk, stock, salt and nutmeg.  Reduce heat to a simmer.  Whisk until smooth.  Add cheese 1/2 cup at a time.  Add broccoli and ladle into a bowl and garnish into a buttery crouton (Cube bread and toss it with melted butter and garlic salt.  Bake on 400 degrees for about 10 minutes until crispy.)
