Cream of Broccoli Soup

                                                                                 Pic/Recipe by Christine It

6 tbsp butter, divided
1 large onion, chopped
2 leeks, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups fresh broccoli florets and chopped stems
6 cups vegetable broth (I use organic vegetable cubes, 1 cube for every two cups of boiled water)
3 cups 10% cream
4 tbsp flour

1. In a large pot, melt 2 tbsp of the butter over medium heat and saute the onion, leek, and garlic until the onion is soft.
2. Add the broccoli and vegetable broth. Simmer uncovered until the broccoli is just soft enough to puree. Puree the broccoli/broth mixture.
3. In another pot, melt the remaining 4 tbsp butter over medium low heat. Whisk in the flour until smooth. Add the cream. Pour it slowly, whisking constantly. Simmer until it thickens, whisking often.
4. Pour the cream mixture into the broccoli puree. Stir until it is well blended.
