  1. Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the broccoli stems, onions, dry mustard and some salt and pepper and saute until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Deglaze with the sherry and then add the broccoli florets. Add the stock and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Carefully ladle everything into a blender along with the fresh spinach, Cheddar, cream and hot sauce and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Adjust with salt and pepper if necessary and adjust the thickness with more cream if necessary. Top with croutons and serve.
