 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Water
    1                    Chicken bouillon cube
    3       c            Broccoli flowerets --
   24       oz           Evaporated skim milk
                         Light Vegetable Oil Spray
    1 1/2   c            Leek -- chopped-white part
                         (2-3 leeks)
    2       tb           All-purpose Flour
      1/2   ts           Ground nutmeg
    1                    Garlic clove -- peeled &
    3       tb           Fresh basil -- chopped
                         Freshly ground black pepper
                         To taste
   Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan over
   medium heat.  Dissolve the bouillon cube in the
   boiling water.  Add the broccoli and cook for 5 to 6
   minutes, until it is bright green and fork tender.
   Put the evaporated milk in a small saucepan.  Warm
   over low heat, just until
   bubbles begin to form around the edge.  Remove the pan
   from the heat.
   Preheat a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat for
   about 1 minute. Spray it
   twice with the vegetable oil.  Add the leeks and
   saute, stirring often, for 7
   to 8 minutes, until limp.  Stir in the flour and cook
   for 1 minute.  Whisk in
   the warm evaporated milk.  Continue to cook, whisking
   constantly, until the flour has dissolved and the
   mixture is smooth.
   Reduce the heat to low.  Add the nutmeg, the garlic,
   and the broccoli, along
   with its cooking liquid.  Simmer for 5 minutes more,
   taking care not to bring
   the soup to a boil.  Remove the pan from the heat and
   stir in the basil and black pepper.
