Broccoli Cheddar Soup


If you haven’t tried Broccoli Cheddar soup before, you don’t know what you’ve been missing! This simple and quick dish is warming, packed with flavour and a wonderful source of fibre, protein and iron. Peas and cauliflower also make great additions!

Serves 5 (excellent for freezing)


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large head of broccoli, florets & stem cut up
  • 1 potato, peeled & diced
  • 1 litre of chicken stock
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Light cream or sour cream to serve


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion and garlic. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until golden (5-10 minutes).
  3. Add the broccoli, potato, salt, pepper and chicken stock (add additional water if needed to just cover the vegetables).
  4. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer until vegetables are just tender (around 15 minutes).
  5. With a hand mixer or blender, puree until smooth.
  6. Stir in cheddar cheese and more salt and pepper if desired.
  7. Ladle into bowls and drizzle with some cream and extra cheese.
