    1 1/2  pounds        broccoli florets -- top third of stalks,
                          -- cut into chunks
    2      tablespoons   olive oil
    1                    onion -- chopped
    2      cups          vegetable stock

           pinch         cayenne

 In a large soup pot, heat the oil and saute the onion until softened.

 cook covered until broccoli is tender, about 1015 minutes. Puree in a
 blender until smooth, thin with heated milk. 
 
 TIP: 
 
 LOOKS LIKE BROCCOLI....BROCCOLI RABE 
 
 Trim off the bottom, tough stems of the broccoli rabe, wash well.
 Slice stems into 1/2-inch pieces and saute with whole peeled garlic
 cloves in olive oil. After 5 minutes add florets, saute until slightly
 tender, add a pinch of Italian red pepper and serve over pasta.
