You will need:

  • 4 cups broccoli, cut in florets
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3½ cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Tip: Use bagged, pre-shredded cheese, as it’s less likely to clump. If you prefer to shred the cheese yourself, throw a little cornstarch into the soup pot to keep the pieces from sticking together.
