This is a creamy tasty satisfying soup! The recipe makes enough for two people for lunch.

Ingredients (serves 2)

430g potatoes, unpeeled
220g broccoli
160g onion
150ml soy milk (or regular milk)
50g gorgonzola
salt and pepper to season

  • Roughly chop the broccoli - stalks, florets and leaves all OK.
  • Roughly slice the onion.
  • Steam all the vegetables.  I use my LeKue steamer for this in the microwave, steaming the potatoes whole in their skins for 10 minute, the broccoli for 5 minutes and the onion for 2mins 30 sec.
  • Measure out together 150ml soy milk and 350ml water.
  • In batches, blend the steamed vegetables and liquid together in a food processor, transferring each batch to a large saucepan.
  • When all the soup has been blended, crumble in the gorgonzola and stir over a gentle heat until the cheese has melted.
  • Season to taste.  I used a good grinding of salt and a black pepper mix that includes orange and lemon peel and garlic.
  • Serve hot.
