Broccoli Soup

8 Jan

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.

Broccoli Soup

– 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.

Bon Appétit.

        If I’m not a big fan of blue cheese, any other replacement that you would advise me with?

        First, thank you for stopping by!! 🙂 If I didnt have any blue cheese, I would add some grated Parmiggiano or crumbled Camembert. 🙂
