Broccoli Soup

I have to admit it- I love broccoli. Love it steamed, in salad, stir fried.  Still it is nice to try it as something other than a side dish.This soup will make it easy to get more veggies in your diet and it takes pretty good, too. I left it as is today, but you can also puree it for a different effect. No matter how you finish it off- it is yummy- but then I love broccoli.

1 lb. Broccoli

2 leeks, trimmed, washed and cut in 1 inch pieces

1 T. butter

1 clove minced garlic

1/8 t. red pepper flakes

3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

Salt and pepper to taste
