Instead of using flour and milk to thicken my soup I used potatoes and cream like I did in my Beer, Cheese soup recipe

I peel and then boil 4-5 red potatoes until they are nice and fork tender, 30-45 minutes, then drain them and then I blend them in the food processor with chicken broth and cream until very smooth then I add them to the onions and then added the chicken broth

Then I boiled the broccoli and cauliflower separately in a big pot of boiling water and boiled it for about 10 minutes, or fork tender

Then I add the broccoli and cauliflower to the onions, potatoes and chicken broth

then I blended everything together with my hand blender

simmer soup for about 15-20 minutes so all the cheese is melted and the soup is warmed all the way through
