Lovely. I added a small leek, small carrot and some parsley just to use things up.

I love this soup. Delicious and filling. I used vegetable stock and vintage cheddar. This is now a regular meal for me. Would be great with buttered rolls or toast

Beautiful soup! I added extra broccoli and a bit of extra cheese :)

Thank you for lovely comments.. I would recommend freezing before adding the dairy! Will last longer!

Also about question of freezing - I have another soup recipe (courgette) that had for years and you can freeze it before adding the dairy (milk in that recipe case). So I would say freeze before putting in the cream and cheese.

lovely flavour soup - I used home grown romanesco brocolli which is a stronger flavour than ordinary brocolli and natural yoghurt instead of the cream - definitely will remake

Shame no information on freezing though. I like to make soup in larger amounts and freeze so OH has plenty of tasty available food in the freezer.

An easy recipe to follow, using mature cheddar cheese added that little extra kick. Delicious and strongly recommend.
