Cut the florets off the stalk and into bite sized pieces. You can also peel the stalk, cut off the bottom inch or so and then cut the stalk into thin slices. Melt butter in a saucepan and saute broccoli, onion and garlic until tender. Combine flour and half and half or cream and stir until smooth. Gradually add to broccoli. Add chicken broth, salt and pepper and stir until thickened. Add grated cheddar cheese and stir over low heat until cheese is melted. Serve warm with chopped green onions for garnish if desired.
