This is as simple as broccoli soup gets: 3 ingredients and 25 mins. Affordable, simple, delicious broccoli soup perfect with a cheese toastie!


Add the potato and stock to a large saucepan and bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 mins, until the potato pieces are tender. Add the broccoli and simmer for another 5 mins, until broccoli is also tender. Blitz until smooth and serve hot. Perfect with bread or toasties. A drizzle of milk, coconut milk or cream adds smoothness and sweetness if you feel it needs it!
