Broccoli & Cheese Soup

This is a very good side dish, but it wasn't hearty enough to fill my family as a main course.

Broccoli & Cheese Soup

3 C. Broccoli (trimmed into bitesize pieces)
1 small carrot, sliced or shredded
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Pepper
1 can Chicken Broth
2 Tbs Flour
1/4 C. Cold Water
1 C. Half and Half
1 C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Heat broccoli, carrot, salt, pepper & chicken broth in sauce pan over high heat.  Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer.  Cover and cook 6-8 mintues or until broccoli is tender.  Mix flour and water together in a small bowl, add slowly to soup, stirring constantly while pouring.  Heat over high heat, boil 1 mintue, stirring constantly.  Stir in half and half, and cheese, cook until hot and steamy, do not boil.
