Default Roasted Broccoli & Garlic Puree

Broccoli Crowns
4 ribs Celery
4-6 cloves Garlic
EVOO
Spices - sea salt, pepper, thyme, sage, rosemary
1c Chicken Broth

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1. Rough chop broccoli crowns, finely chop stems, chop celery in ~2" pieces, keep garlic in the shells
2. Place veggies on cookie sheet, spray with EVOO, sprinkle with seasonings
3. Roast veggies ~30 minutes, broccoli crowns will start to brown
4. Place broccoli, celery, and shelled garlic in blender with Chicken Broth and spices to taste until smooth.

*This would work as a thickener in broccoli soup!
*I usually chop the stems of broccoli & cauliflower 'finer' than the crowns because they are thicker & need the extra help to get tender during roasting
