Broccoli soup (no meat, but chix broth)

I didn't know if this should go in the vegetarian thread or not, so I'll post it here. I know a President who wouldn't like it, but he can't tell me it's no good!

Cream of Broccoli Soup:

Making the roux:
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in sauce pan.
Add 2 tablespoons flour
Cook slowly for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Cool.

Cut up a head of broccoli into small pieces. Reserve 1 cup broccoli florets. Saute 1 onion in 2 tablespoons butter in large sauce pan until tender. Stir in broccoli, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in 1 quart chicken stock or chicken broth. Heat until simmering. Stir a small amount into roux, then add mixture to sauce, stirring until smooth. Simmer until tender (about 30 minutes). Cool slightly, then puree in blender. Return to sauce pan. Add 1/.2 cup heavy cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook reserve florets in boiling salted water until tender. Add to soup just before serving. If soup is not thick enough, dissolve 2 tablespoons cornstarch in a small amount of water, and add to soup after adding cream.

I know a lot of people don't like broccoli, but if you do, this is a good recipe.
