In a large pot, melt the butter on medium, and add all the vegetables.
Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all vegetables
are softened. Stir in the flour until it coats all the vegetables, then stir in
the chicken stock vigorously to keep the flour from clumping. Simmer
for a few minutes, then pour a little of soup at a time into a blender, and
puree until mostly smooth. You can also use a hand held mixer and Mix
it right in the pot. Make sure to remove pot from burner first.

Serve with some Parmesan crisps, or garlic baguettes. Yummy!!
