3-4cupsmilk or milk substitute
Salt and pepper to taste
Place broccoli in steamer (we use a pan and metal steamer basket for all our steamed veggies to make it easy) and steam until slightly tender but not overdone.
While broccoli is steaming, get out a saute pan and saute butter, garlic and onion until tender. Add milk and broccoli to pan and heat through.
In a blender (I used my NEW handy Vitamix, oh my how I love this thing), add the parmesan cheese and the broccoli mixture from stove. Blend until smooth. Transfer back to stove and taste. Add salt and pepper. Add more milk if a thinner consistency is needed (or if you like a thicker soup add a tablespoon of flour).
