Creamy Broccoli and Bean Soup

This is even better the next day for lunch so make a big pot.
4 - 5 cups of broccoli
olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion diced
3 cans cannellini beans
5 plus cups chicken stock
shredded cheese
Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil.  Cook broccoli.  Combine all ingredients.  Either using a blender or a emersion blender, puree most of the broccoli and beans - this is what makes it creamy without having to be a milk base.  Add as much chicken stock for how soupy you like your soup.  Before serving sprinkle with shredded cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
