Broccoli soup? I challenge you to give this delicious, simple recipe a go. After all, Martians eat it!


Prep Time

Cook Time

4 people 15 minutes 20 minutes


  • 1 medium Onion chopped finely
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 4 rashers short cut bacon diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500 grams broccoli florets cut into small pieces
  • 2 medium potatoes peeled & diced (dice size 1-2 cm for quicker cooking)
  • 1 Litre chicken or vegetable stock salt-reduced
  • 50 grams cheddar cheese grated
  • 4-6 slices crusty bread


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan and add onion, garlic and bacon.
  2. Fry till onion softens and bacon is beginning to crisp.
  3. Add diced potatoes and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  4. Add stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes or until potato is tender.
  5. Add broccoli and simmer for an additional 5 minutes till broccoli is just soft (it should still be a lovely vibrant green colour, not grey!)
  6. While soup is simmering, top your crusty bread with grated cheese and melt under a grill.
  7. Remove the soup from the heat and blend with a stick blender or food processor.
  8. Serve immediately with the cheesy bread for dipping.
