In your soup pot, saute onion and garlic in the 2 T butter. Remove the veggies and set aside.
In the same pot, melt the 1/2 c butter, then add flour, and cook, whisking constantly, over medium heat for 5 minutes. (In other words, make a roux).
Stirring or whisking constantly, slowly add the half & half.
Add the chicken broth and mix well.
Bring it all to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat 20 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
At this point, you can puree the soup, or mash it a bit with a handheld potato masher, or leave it as-is.
Return to heat and add cheese till melted.
Serve, and let people add Tabasco if they like.
