2 cups fresh broccoli crowns, chopped
1 cup water
dash garlic salt (or just salt) and pepper to taste
Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a medium saucepan with a lid. Add broccoli and garlic salt and/or pepper. Cover immediately. Steam for about 2-5 minutes, until broccoli is tender but still has it's color. (Don't overcook)
Transfer the water and broccoli to a blender (Vita-mix works best). Pulse on medium (5-6) until the broccoli is well broken up, then blend from medium to high until smooth (about 30 seconds in a Vita-mix, a minute or two in a blender).
Pour in a bowl or cup. Optional: garnish with grated cheese of choice and serve with crackers. Enjoy!
