Creamy Broccoli Soup with Fresh Rosemary

Easy to prepare and deeply nourishing! This soup can be varied according to what vegetables you have on hand– substitute carrots, winter squash, sweet corn, or zucchini for the broccoli if you wish. Also, feel free to substitute a light vegetable stock (without tomatoes) for the water for a richer soup. Let me know what variations you come up with.
