Honey there are some things broccoli should never be and soup is one of them. There is something vomity about it in liquid form anyway and you go and add cheese? What are you? On crack?

Seriously. After all these years and all this Veggie Mama-ing, you still don’t trust me? Why would I bring to you a disgusting soup? It’s one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted. Rich and velvety, the thing is like nectar from the gods. Sure I was apprehensive the first time I made it, but I can’t imagine what life would be like without this soup in it. Ye of little faith.


Meanwhile you had such a bad week with replacements last week. Wield the power and cut his darn copy.

Kind Regards,

Well I expect a thermos of said soup at your earliest convenience. Until then you are safe from elimination and still in the MasterChef competition.

1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large head broccoli
2 potatoes, diced
1 litre vegetable stock
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup grated tasty cheese

1. Saute the onion garlic in 1 teaspoon each butter and oil over medium heat until translucent.

2. Add the broccoli, potatoes and stock and turn up the heat. Boil 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are cooked.

3. Meanwhile, melt the 1 tablespoon butter in a small pan over low heat. Add the flour and cook 1 minute. Add the milk and whisk vigorously until smooth. Cook slowly until the sauce is thick and creamy. Add the cheese.

4. Blend the soup to a puree and add the cheese sauce. Serve with lots of delicious, hot bread.


  1. Oh, you guys are too cute!  Would love me some of that soup x

  2. this is awesome with parmesan cheese too.
    ohhhh droooool 

  3. By the way, your blog design is my absolute favourite! xo

  4. Um, definitely! any cheese, really.

  5. will make a double batch next time :)

  6. Yum! Looks delicious! I love broccoli soup, but mine has fewer ingredients, and no potato or cheese. Will have to try yours next time I make it!

  7. Let me know how it goes!

  8. I actually added the potato to cut down on the broccoli, as I was worried it might make my baby too gassy... was pleasantly surprised!

  9. This was delicious. My boyfriend's comment was "This Veggie Mama girl's a genius!". I stuck to the recipe exactly as written (with gluten free sub for flour) and it was perfect. I served it with zucchini slice. Thanks!
