In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and carrots and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until softened, stirring often. Stir in flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

Gradually stir in stock and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil slowly, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
