  1. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 cups diced onions and 2 cups sliced carrots and sauté until onions soften, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add 4 cups broccoli florets, reduce to a simmer. Partially cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until the broccoli is fork tender.

  4. Remove 2 cups of vegetables from the soup with a strainer and set aside.

  5. Blend remaining soup in the pot with an immersion blender or pureé in batches in a blender or food processor.

  6. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1 teaspoon dijon mustard with 3 tablespoons flour. Whisk until smooth and thick like frosting. Add the mixture to the hot soup and whisk for a couple minutes to thicken.

  8. Stir the reserved veggies back into the soup and season with salt to taste if needed.
