Broccoli Cheese Soup

6 tbs butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour
2 cups vegetable broth
2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
16 oz package frozen broccoli
2 carrots, shredded
6 oz pasteurized, process cheese, cubed
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add onion, cook and stir until softened, add garlic and stir for 1 minute. Increase heat to medium, whisk in flour until smooth, cook and stir 3 minutes without browning. Gradually whisk in broth and milk, add mustard, salt, pepper and cook about 15 minutes or until thickened. Add broccoli and cook 15 minutes. Add carrots, cook 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Transfer half of the soup to a food blender and purée, return to saucepan (purée the other half of the soup as well). Add cubed cheese and shredded cheese, cook and stir over low heat until cheeses are melted.
