a most cheesy dinner: part one

There are few foods that do it for me the way cheese does. It can be dolled up or dressed down, incorporated into all meals–including dessert–and served hot or cold.

This meal is dedicated to you, cheddar cheese. I love you.

In a pot, sautee diced onions in oil over medium heat until translucent, adding minced garlic during the last minute of cooking. Pour in beer of your choice and allow it to reduce by 3/4. Add broccoli florets and stems, roughly chopped, and cover with chicken stock. Simmer until the broccoli is tender. Purée in a blender or with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese a little at a time so that the soup retains a silky, slightly thick consistency.
