  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 large broccoli
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 3 olive oil
  • 100 g grated cheddar
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 900 ml vegetable stock
  • croutons to serve
  • large cooking pot
  • potato peeler
  • knife
  • cutting board
  • jug

Peel the potatoes and chop into cubes. Wash and cut the broccoli, keeping only the flowers. Peel and slice the onion. fry the onion in olive oil, stirring constantly to avoid burning while caramelising.

Once the onions have a good colour, add the potatoes and broccoli and stir, frying slightly in the flavour of the onions. Add the stock, salt and pepper and stir. Bring to the boil then reduce the temperature and simmer for around 20 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.

When cooked, transfer the vegetables to the blender. Don’t add all the stock at once, add a little and blend and if the consistency is not quite right then add more as needed. Blend for around 90 seconds.

Transfer the blended soup back to the pot and add the cheese. Stir over the heat to boil slightly and melt the cheese completely. Serve with croutons.
