    Chef mariajane's Note:

    Broccoli has been an all-time favorive vegetable in Milk Calendar recipes over the past 35 years. This easy irrestible soup that was first featured in 2000, makes broccoli shine again - especially when topped with Canadian Cheddar or Gruyere Cheese!! I always watch these recipes from the Milk Calendar - some of them are so Delicious - as this one is!!!!

      Peel and chop broccoli stems and coarsely chop florets, keeping stems and florets separate (you should have about 6 cups total).

    3. 3
      Transfer to a blender or food processor, in batches, or use an immersion blender in hot pot and purée soup, adding Milk until smooth. Return to pot if necessaary. Heat over medium heat, stirring , until steaming, but do not let boil. Stir in more milk if soup is too thick.

    5. 5
      COOKING TIPS: To dress this soup up for enterraining, sprinkle the cheese on thin slice of baguette and toast under the broiler for elegant croutons, then float them in the bowls of soup.
    6. 6
      FOR THE ADVENTUROUS: Reduce the broccoli to 4 cups and add 2 cups chopped trimmed rapini with the florets and 1 tablespoons chopped fresh sage instead of the dried thyme.
