3 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
1 ¾ cups broccoli florets (about 8 ounces)

2 garlic cloves
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¾ cup half-and-half
4 ounces shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese

Chop the broccoli florets and carrots, dice the onion and mince the garlic cloves. Pour the stock into a large saucepan and bring to a boil, adding the broccoli, onion, carrots, salt, pepper and garlic. Reduce heat and cook until broccoli is tender.
