Default Cream of Broccoli Soup

Sorry, I don't have the carb count.

Cream of Broccoli Soup (4)

2 c chopped broccoli stalks
broccoli florets (from the above stalks)
1 c chopped celery
3 c chicken broth
1/4 c combined broccoli and celery leaves
3 Tbsp chopped parsley
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2-1 tsp salt, or to taste
2/3 c heavy cream

Combine broccoli, celery, broth, leaves, parsley, garlic, and
salt.Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Cool a
little and puree veggies and about 1 c of the broth in blender. Transfer
back to saucepan, adding remaining broth a little at a time until desired
consistency is reached (remember, you'll be adding the cream too).
Bring to a boil and add cream. Reheat, stirring, being careful
not to boil soup. Serve immediately.

I loved this recipe---it reminded of my son when he was little---he always called broccoli trees when he ate them. To this day he loves broccoli.
