How to make it
- Sautee up a chopped onion in some bacon fat or butter with 2 T flour on med-low for 3 - 5 mins until translucent. Add more fat as necessary to the onion & roux. For a vegetarian recipe, use butter.
- Add 1 - 4 minced garlic cloves and some chopped celery.
- When garlic starts to brown, add a lot of chicken stock, the BIG can. Yes, the whole thing.
- Bring to a boil.
- Throw in the broccoli. Steam/boil until done. The broccoli is done when it's bright green and a fork slides into it easily. Do not overcook!
- Take off the heat.
- Blenderize/hand blenderize. Hand blenders rock!
- Warm it back up.
- Add some cream and stir.
- Add your grated cheese and stir.
- Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
