  • 1 cup white sauce 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • In a large pot heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add onion, celery, garlic, carrot, and broccoli.
  • Pour broth over vegetables and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium and simmer 5 minutes.
  • Using an immersion blender, puree until smooth (you can use a regular blender if uyou dont have one).
  • Add white sauce and  heat through. 
  • Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  • Serve garlic bread,toasted.(apply garlic butter on sliced rolls/bread)
