Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

With the weather returning back to its pre-winter like state, its the perfect time to start busting out some new soup recipies.
My two favorite soups are vegetable and brocolli and cheddar  so when I found this recipie I was so excited!
It was the perfect blend of the two

So here is the recipie. If you try it let me know what you think.
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped carrot
2 celery stick, finely chopped 
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
2 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 Tablespoon flour
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup milk
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 heaping cups shredded cheddar cheese
(make sure you use a sharp aged cheddar to get the right cheese flavor)

Melt the butter in a large soup pot.  Add onions, carrots, and celery and saute over medium heat until tender.  Add garlic and cook 1 or 2 additional minutes.  Add chicken broth and potatoes, bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender.  Mix flour with water, add, and simmer until soup is slightly thickened.  Add milk and broccoli and cook until broccoli is just tender and soup is heated through.  Stir in cheese, allow to melt, and serve.
