    Add broccoli to boiling water and cook until bright green and very tender, 3-5 minutes. Thoroughly drain in a colander and return to pot. Drain as much water as possible. Add sour cream, Parmesan, and half the remaining garlic. Mash into a coarse consistency. Taste, and add remaining garlic if desired. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
