Ingredients

  • 1 large head broccoli
  • 2 tbsp oil, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 380 g (~ 13 1/2 oz) potatoes, diced
  • 750 ml (~ 3 cups) vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • Black pepper
  • 100 g cheddar cheese, grated (~ 1 cup when grated)
  • 1 tbsp sour cream

Instructions

  • Cut the florets off the broccoli. Peel any particularly tough parts from the exterior of the stalk, and cut the stalk into quarters lengthwise. Place all the broccoli on a baking tray, and drizzle with oil. Roast at 180°C (Gas Mark 4 / 350°F) for around 20 minutes (depending on exactly how big you cut your broccoli) - it should be lightly browned, and mostly softened up.
  • While the broccoli is roasting, heat another dash of oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic, and cook over a medium heat for a couple of minutes until soft and fragrant. Add the diced potatoes, vegetable stock, dried herbs, and a generous pinch of black pepper. Bring to a simmer, and cook for around 15 minutes, until the potatoes are very soft.
  • Add the roasted broccoli to the pan (hold back a few pieces for garnish, if you like), and use a hand blender to blend the soup to your liking - I left mine with a little texture.
  • Add the grated cheese and sour cream, and mix over a low heat until the cheese has completely melted. You can add some more water to thin out the soup a little more if desired, or to stretch it to feed more people.
