Soup Series on LMFM's Late Lunch- Broccoli & Blue Cheese Soup

Mar 07, 2024

To conclude our current Cooking segment on LMFM's Late Lunch, I have a really tasty Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup. If you haven't tried this before, I promise you, it's a really incredibly delicious soup. This would be lovely as a lunch on a cold day after a bracing walk with some lovely homemade brown bread. 

(Serves 4)


1 Onion, chopped

1 clove of Garlic, chopped

750g Broccoli, chopped into fluores

500ml chicken stock

100g Blue Cheese, crumbled

1 tblsp Rapeseed Oil

Knob of Butter

Salt & Pepper. 


Heat the oil in a large pot and add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cover and sweat for five minutes until the onion softens. Add the garlic and pepper and cook through for a moment or two before adding the stock.  When the stock is on a rolling boil add the broccoli. It's very important to ensure the stock is boiling before you add the broccoli so that it retains its vibrant green colour. Cook for a couple of minutes until the broccoli is tender. Add the blue cheese and whizz up using a stick blender.
