This is how I love to make a quick and simple soup with leftover vegetables. This soup is great made with asparagus too. You can add milk or cream at the end if you like,I don't care for creamy soups,but if you do,go for it!
Also I make a broth using the stems of the broccoli,just simmer them in vegetable or chicken broth until tender,strain and use it for the liquid for the soup,then puree the stems for the soup.
The measurements are approximate,use your judgement,depending on how much broccoli you use.
