Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli, leeks, and onion, and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and stir in the cottage cheese. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until creamy. (Alternatively, carefully transfer the soup to a blender, blend until smooth, then return to the pot.)
Taste the soup and add a dash of hot sauce, if desired.
Remove from heat, ladle into a bowl, and garnish with chives.
Makes 3 cups of soup in total. Note that this will depend on how much your soup cooks down/how long you simmer it - total amount can vary. If you make this in bulk, I suggest you measure the total amount it makes at the end and then divide it by the number of servings you should get to know how much to serve yourself.
