Just to go one better, you can also add some crispy smoked bacon pieces/lardons to give this hearty soup even more flavour.

  • 4 Rashers of Smoked Streaky Bacon (Optional)
  • 1 Broccoli (You can use up some cauliflower too)
  • 1 medium Onion
  • Oil
  • Chicken or Vegetable Stock Cube
  • 75g Soft Blue Cheese (or cheese of choice).
  • Salt and Pepper to for seasoning

Please note that our recipes are an approximate guideline - Quantities along with ingredients are totally adaptable to suit personal taste, consistency and density as well as portion sizes.


  1. Heat your oil on a medium level in a pan ready to soften your onions
  2. Add the broccoli and crumble in your stock cube. Pour in your water (approx 1 litre) and bring to the boil.
  3. Simmer until the broccoli has softened
  4. You can blend for a smooth soup or leave chunky, but allow it to cool before mixing and then return to the pan and heat.
  5. Stir in your cheese and season to taste, you can add water or thicken with a teaspoon of cornflour.
  6. Serve with a sprinkle of bacon on top or stir in. Why not add some croutons too!
  7. Crusty fresh bread and butter is always a winner with soup
