Serves 4
You can make the broth up to Step two a couple of days in advance, and refrigerate.
3pounds chicken wings
8cups Homemade Chicken Stock , or low-sodium canned chicken broth, skimmed of fat
1ounce (about 10) dried shiitake mushrooms, rinsed
1medium onion, peeled and roughly chopped
6large sprigs fresh thyme
5whole black peppercorns
1head garlic
4ounces (about 12) fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and caps sliced crosswise into thin pieces
1small or 1/2 large head broccoli, trimmed of stalks and florets reserved
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 1.   Combine chicken wings, chicken stock, dried shiitake mushrooms, onion, thyme, and peppercorns in a medium saucepan. Cover; bring liquid to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer gently, with lid slightly ajar, 1 hour.
 2.   Strain the broth through a fine sieve set over a heat-proof bowl, and discard the solids. Let the broth cool to room temperature, and cover bowl with plastic wrap. Transfer broth to refrigerator, and chill.
 3.   Heat oven to 400°. Wrap garlic head in aluminum foil, and cook until cloves become very soft, 35 to 45 minutes. Set roasted garlic aside to cool.
 4.   Using a spoon, skim off all fat from chilled broth; discard the fat. Transfer the broth to a medium saucepan, and warm over medium-low heat. Add the fresh shiitake mushrooms; continue warming soup.
 5.   Remove the roasted garlic from each clove, and transfer to a small bowl. Using a fork, combine until a puré forms. Set aside.
 6.   Place a steamer basket in the bottom of a large saucepan containing 1 inch of water. Place broccoli florets in steamer. Cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low, and steam, until broccoli is fork tender, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove broccoli from the steamer.
 7.   Add steamed broccoli to the soup. Season with salt and pepper. Divide soup among four soup plates, and garnish each with 1/2 teaspoon roasted-garlic purée. Serve hot.
