    Directions:
    Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.

    Sauté onion in hot butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

    In a jar, mix potato starch together with about ½ cup of the chicken stock. Cover with a tight lid, and shake until blended.

    In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, melt ¼ cup of butter

    Gradually pour milk, along with the potato starch mixture while whisking constantly.

    Stir chicken stock into milk mixture. Bring to a simmer; cook until the mixture is thickened, about 15-20 minutes. Adjust thickness by adding water, or a bit more potato starch, as needed.

    Add broccoli, carrots, sauteéd onion, and celery; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

    Stir Cheddar cheese into mixture until cheese melts. Mix well.

    Season with salt and pepper to taste.
