2 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil
4 cups, low sodium and low fat chicken broth
1 Lb. frozen broccoli, thawed and chopped
4 cups shredded chedder cheese
1 to 2 tea. garlic powder, to taste
salt and pepper to taste
pan spray Feel free to use either fresh or frozen broccoli in this dish.
In frying pan put oil and heat but not so that it smokes. Slowly start whisking flour, a little at a time until smooth and bubbly. Be sure to whisk well. Slowly whisk in chicken broth a little at a time keeping all smooth and bubbly. When all chicken broth is mix in, remove from heat.
Pour mixture into prepared crock pot (spray first with pan spray)
