  • 2 heads of broccoli
  • 1.5 litres of chicken stock
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 heaped tbsp mustard seeds
  • 1.5 heaped tbsp fennel seeds
  • 150g cooking chorizo, cubed
  • 150g Gruyère, grated
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed/sunflower oil
  • a few tbsp of light cream


  1. Dry-roast the mustard and fennel seeds over medium heat until the mustard seeds start to pop. Using a mortar and pestle, grind to a fine powder.

  2. In a medium to large saucepan, fry the cubed chorizo (without using any additional oi/butter) for 4 minutes over medium heat until coloured and releasing their wonderfully fragrant oil.

  3. Add the tbsp of oil, give it a moment to heat up and add the onion and garlic. Sauté for 3 minutes until just starting to brown.

  4. Add mustard/fennel powder, mix well and fry for another minute (stirring continuously).

  5. Add broccoli and chicken stock. Up the heat and bring to a boil.

  6. Pop a lid on, turn down the heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes.

  7. Blend the soup well using a handheld mixer/blender before adding the Gruyère, cream and chorizo. Stir well.
