It’s been very cold these days, raining, thunders. But I adore this refreshing, sharp cold, greyish sky, sun’s rays cutting through the clouds, glittering raindrops, rainbows. What could make these cold days, warmer, cosy, homey? a hot soup. I had in the fridge a medium head of broccoli and some blue cheese leftover.
I didn’t expect it would be so delicious, it made my body warm. Plus it’s so easy to prepare and it takes no time at all. Here’s a warm comfy recipe for your cold nights.
– 1 large onion, roughly chopped
– olive oil
– 1 large potato, peeled, cubed
– 1 liter vegetable stock
– 1 head broccoli, about 300 g, roughly chopped
– 100 g blue cheese ( I used Roquefort)
Cook the onion in 1 tbsp olive oil until soft about 5 min. Add the potato and stock and simmer until the potato is tender, about 10 min. Add the broccoli and cook for 5 min til tender but bright green. Then add half the cheese and whizz in a blender to a smooth soup. Season and serve with the rest of the crumbled cheese. You can serve it with a toasted slice of bread.
