2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

In a 3 quart, microwave safe casserole dish combine butter, garlic and onion. Place dish in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes.

Place vegetable broth in a microwave safe dish. Heat on microwave until the broth is hot but no boiling (approximately 2 minutes).
