~Saute 6 cloves of garlic (minced) in a cast iron frying pan or dutch oven for 1 minute.
~Add 5 & 1/4 Cups of chicken broth. Heat on medium. As is begins to warm, add 1 & 1/2 cups of heavy cream & 6 cups of broccoli chunks. (I have diced mine small in a mandaline chopper for young children and add 2 cans of chopped carrots run through the mandaline chopper as well.) Heat. Bring to a boil slowly. Then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. (Veggies should be soft and tender.)
~Once heated thoroughly, remove from heat. Continually stir and add 4-5 Cups of shredded cheddar cheese.
