Lunch Sunday 17 June - Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

Broccoli & Cheddar Soup
100g onion, chopped
380g broccoli
400ml vegetable stock
10g butter
10g sauce flour
30ml single cream
50g reduced fat Cheddar Cheese (I had LesKol)

Saute the onion in in butter until soft & translucent. Add the sauce flour and cook over low heat to make a roux. Add the vegetable stock, a little at a time, until a smooth sauce is formed

Add the chopped broccoli, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until broccoli is soft.

Blitz with a hand blender or in a blender jar and then add the cream and most of the cheese, reserving a bit for garish.

Heat through without boiling and serve garnished with the reserved cheese.
