Broccoli and cheese soup ( no flour)
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:53:09 pm »
Name of Recipe: broccoli and cheese soup
Number of People: 4 hungry or 5 to 6 as a starter
Ingredients:

BROCCOLI AND CHEESE SOUP

2 onions, 30 - 50 g butter ( could use oil) , 450gms broccoli, 560mls stock, 85  gms grated cheddar cheese,
140 ml single cream

Very quick to make and delicious.


Preparation:
Put butter in  *: and melt.
Peel and quarter onions  drop on running blades speed 4 to chop.
cook in  *: 5 mins speed 2 100'.  until softened.
Trim, wash and chop broccoli (I peel the stalks and stick them in, weighing the veg after prep) and add to  *: turning in buttery juices for a minute or two. Add stock for 20 mins speed 3 to 4 100'. Check cooked.  Season to taste and stir in cheese (and cream if using) at 90'  until well amalgamated.


Tips/Hints: Lots of variations:
swirl of cream to add wow factor on serving.
Add more liquid if needed or preferred.
Can use more stock and no cream, or milk instead of cream.
I tend to use a mix of creams and milk depending on fridge contents.
Butter adds better flavour but can use less or oil.
I use chicken stock or veggie if no chicken available.
Today I used 1 large onion, 1 small leek and 1 stick of celery.

I take my own serving out and add slightly less cheese to rest.
Everyone likes this soup even non broccoli eaters, just think of a different name.

I hope you like my conversion and enjoy the soup. We had it for lunch today.

It sounds lovely DJ and healthy too.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I have a similar recipe that we love. I'll try yours out soon. Even broccoli-haters (like me) enjoy this one.
