  • 450 g raw broccoli
  • 300 g raw white potato
  • 1 large shallot
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Handful of parsley
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 200 g cheddar cheese
  • 1 L chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 20 g unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Dice the potato, shallot and garlic and chop the broccoli into small pieces before setting aside. The sizing doesn't matter so much here because the soup will be blended.
  • Add the olive oil, butter, garlic and shallot to a large pot on a medium heat. Sweat for around 3 minutes or until the shallot starts to brown. Add in the potato cubes and cayenne pepper and continue to cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Add the broccoli and boiling stock to the pot, bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer gently for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and allot the soup to cool for around 45 minutes before adding the parsley.
  • Blend the soup in batches in a heatproof food processor (if still warm) until smooth, then add back to the pot.
  • Grate the cheddar. Add 150g of the grated cheddar to the pot and gently heat until all of the cheese has melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve in a bowl with the remaining cheddar.
