1 Trim the broccoli, reserving some of the stems. Bring a large saucepan of water to boiling. Add the broccoli and salt to taste. Cook until the broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well, reserving some of the water.
2 Transfer the broccoli to a food processor. Add the garlic and process until chopped fine. With the motor running, add the oil through the tube and process until smooth and spreadable. Add a tablespoon or two of the broccoli water if the mixture is too thick. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3 Place a barbecue grill or broiler rack about 5 inches away from the heat source. Preheat the grill or broiler. Toast the bread on one side until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Turn the bread and toast the other side, about 2 minutes. Spread with the warm broccoli puree. Serve immediately.
