Salt & pepper to taste

Heat butter in a large pot on medium heat. Once melted, add the garlic, onion and potato and cook until the onions are translucent.

Next add the broth, cover and cook on medium/high for 20 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Remove ½ cup of the cooked potatoes and set aside. Add a pinch of salt, pepper and thyme.

Using an immersion blender, puree the soup or put into a blender in batches. After the soup is smooth, add the cream, broccoli, carrots and the cooked potatoes. Cover and cook on medium/low for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
