Broccoli, Leeks-Soup

I looked in most all of my cook books and could not find a recipe for broccoli soup. So here is my version that I made for lunch today. You have to know that I didn’t measure, I’m not really good at flowing recipes, or making them exact…so use this as a guide only 2 heads of broccoli steamed-keep water ¼-1/2 cup butter 2 leeks or onions chopped ¼-1/2 cup flour 3 cloves garlic minced 4 cups milk Salt & pepper 1 teaspoon thyme Cut broccoli heads into florets do not remove the leaves or the stem. Cook it all in a about 1 quart of water until tender. Blend the broccoli and use milk to keep the blender buzzing. Once the broccoli is ready I then melted the butter and sautéed the leeks, garlic and thyme until they were mostly soft, I scooched the onions out of the middle of the pan added another ¼ cup of butter, melted it and then added the flour. (This is a quick white sauce lazy method). Once the flour has covered the leeks, I slowly added the broccoli/milk blended mixture to the leek flour mixture, first making a paste, and then added the entire broccoli mixture, including the reserved water from steaming. Cook until all is thickened and hot. Serve
