Cream of Broccoli Soup

What do you do with over cooked  broccoli? Of course you make cream of broccoli soup. It's a way to save food that would be too gross to eat , or would wind up in the trash. Serve it hot with grill cheese fingers, and avocado slices, crispy bacon.

I prefer my broccoli cooked more on the crispy side. My husband Toby asked me to cook his broccoli more, and this was the results. Over cooked broccoli..

 1 medium onion chopped,
 3 tablespoons butter,
 5 cloves fresh garlic chopped,
 3 tablespoons flour,
 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper,
 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, 
1/4 teaspoon salt, 
12 0z can evaporated milk,
 1 cup water, 2 cups milk,
 1/2 cup of shredded cheese Monterrey pepper jack,
 1 chopped avocado for garnish.
Place large pot on medium heat. Melt butter saute onions, and garlic till onions are translucent. Make a rue by adding flour, black pepper, salt, till slightly browned.

Then add evaporated milk, milk, water, thyme, boil till soup thickens, for about 30 minutes. Remove soup from heat add shredded cheese. Garnish with sliced avocados. Enjoy!
