Roasted Garlic and Broccoli Soup

Ingredients: (Makes about 3 cups)
Broccoli - 2 cups
Low fat milk/cream - ½ cup
Curry powder (optional) - ½ tbspn
Fresh ground pepper - ½ tbspn
Roasted garlic - 3 cloves
Salt according to taste

Cut the  garlic pod horizontally into two.
In the Oven;
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Rub olive oil on the cut side of garlic and wrap them completely in aluminum foil.
Place the foil on the lower rack of the oven for about 20 minutes.
Turn of the oven after 20 minutes and allow garlic to rest for few more minutes.
Once its cool, you can squeeze the garlic and it falls of the skin.
On the Stove Top;
Rub olive oil on the cut side of the garlic and wrap them in aluminium foil. Hold the foil directly on the flame(or you can place the foil directly on the flame if you are using induction stove), till the nice aroma of the garlic comes. Turn off the stove and allow garlic to rest and remove the skins.
Pressure cook broccoli in a cooker with salt. When broccoli is cooked, blend the broccoli into creamy consistency. Now transfer the pureed broccoli to a soup pan and add milk and the roasted garlic. Now add pepper and allow it boil for 4-5 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve hot with Croutons.
