Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the potato and stock in a saucepan and bring to the boil, turn down to simmer for 10 mins until the potato is tender, then add the broccoli and some seasoning and cook for another 4-5 mins. Blend the soup until smooth, then return to the pan and keep warm while you make the toasties.
  2. Whizz 1 slice of bread to make crumbs, then stir in the cheese, egg and onions. Spread over 3 slices of bread, add a dash of Worcestershire sauce, and sandwich each one together with the remaining slices. Brush with oil and bake for 10 mins, turning halfway through, until the outside is crisp and golden and middle melted. Cut into triangles and serve with the soup.

A fabulous soup with only basic ingredients. I added an onion and a stick of celery softened in olive oil for five mins at the beginning. great fresh taste and low fat if you forget the cheesey stuff. I'll be making this again - especially with the slightly dry head of broccoli lingering at the bottom of the veggie drawer.

This was soup was a lovely colour and surprisingly good for such a small amount of ingredients but unfortunately I added too much salt which made me extremely thirsty afterwards! The cheese toasties were good with it. Instead of putting them in the oven, I put them in a toastabag and popped them in the toaster.

This soup was ok but needed something else to it.

I added cream and left to cool ing the fridge. On re-heating i added Blue Cheese along with a helping of pepper. Made such a difference.

Toasties go well with it!

The soup itself could do with pepping up a bit - you defo need the toasts with them which are very nice.
