Cream of broccoli soup

Weekend time is leisure time! Just staying home, lazy, want to watch some movies and have healthy, creamy, ofcourse tasty food!
Broccoli ranks top in my list of most valuable nutrient food. This should be a surprise for Sundar, today. Since the summer began, had taken away all soups from cooking list. Kutti was running around for creamy, smooth broccoli soup. Behind came sundar, for the yuuuuuumy soup but I had to finish photos of the soup.
The two hungry kids are waiting now. More than to my satisfaction, the soup went away quickly.
Creamy, smooth, greeny, "bowl of healthy nutrients' soup" - cream of broccoli soup.

You need
1 cup of chopped broccoli
2 cups of milk
1 1/2 tbsp flour (All Purpose/maida)
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp chopped onion (I used red onion, but white onion tastes better)
salt and pepper to taste

1. Finely chop the broccoli, and onion. Chop really fine so that you can avoid having to puree or blend the soup later.
2. Heat the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion and saute till translucent.
3. Add the flour and saute till the flour turns a light brown and has a slight nutty aroma.
4. Add the broccoli and saute a little. Now add the milk and stir with a whisk to avoid lumping.
5. Heat/boil till desired consistency. I made a very thick soup.
6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
7. Garnish with a small microwaved floret of broccoli. Serve with garlic bread.
