Here’s how to make it:

  1. Cook broccoli until tender. Drain, season with garlic powder and set aside.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and whisk until well blended.
  3. Add milk and whisk until smooth. Cook until sauce thickens.
  4. Add cheddar cheese and stir until cheese has melted.
