  10. Using a stick (immersion) blender, puree some the broccoli into the soup. You can leave behind a few pieces of broccoli or you can puree all of it. If you don't have a stick blender you can puree the soup in a regular blender and return it to the pot.
  11. Add the grated cheese, stir to combine.
