In a large pot over medium-low heat add butter and sauté onions and carrots about 5 minutes, until onions are translucent.
Add garlic, stir and cook 1 minute.

Slowly stir in chicken and/or vegetable stock, about a half cup at a time.
Add broccoli and salt and pepper.
Simmer on medium heat about 15 minutes, until broccoli is cooked.

If you find yourself without carrots, just leave them out. I’ve made it both ways, the soup will still taste great.
