Cream of Broccoli Tarragon Soup

1 tbsp butter or margarine
1/2 med onion,diced
2 cup broccoli stalks,peeled and sliced
4 cup chicken stock
2 Tbsp butter or margarine
2 Tbsp flour
2 cup milk
1/2 Tbsp dried tarragon or 2 Tbsp fresh tarragon

In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium-low heat. Do not
allow it to boil. While the milk is slowly heating, in a large pan
or kettle (about 4 quart minimum) saute the onion and broccoli
slices in 1 Tbsp butter until the onion becomes soft but not browned,
about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer for
10 minutes. Then off heat, and use a blender or preferably a
hand-held blender to puree the soup. Add the tarragon and allow
the soup to simmer over low heat.

In a heavy-bottomed 2-quart saucepan, melt the 2 Tbsp of butter
over medium heat. Stir in the flour and continue to stir for 2
minutes to cook it thoroughly. Do not allow it to brown. Whisk in
the hot milk slowly. Be careful, for it will boil at once. Continue
to whisk as it bubbles for one minute until it is smooth and free
of lumps. Remove from heat and whisk into the soup. Simmer, stirring
constantly, until the soup coats a spoon lightly. Correct seasoning
and serve. You can garnish with sprigs of fresh tarragon or with
broccoli flowerets. May be served hot or cold.
