Broccoli Soup

Ingredients

1/2 cup good quality olive oil
2 small onions
8 cloves garlic
2 - 3 rashers bacon, rind removed, chopped
40g chopped potato
1L quality vegetable or chicken stock
1kg fresh broccoli (use stems if organic, remove if not as they have little flavour)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground black pepper
your favourite blue cheese, crumbled
fresh chervil

Method

Place olive oil in large heavy-based saucepan. Chop onions and garlic in a food processor. Sauté over slow heat until translucent, but not coloured. 

Add bacon and when cooked, add potatoes and cook for a few minutes while stirring. Add stock and cook until potatoes are tender. Add broccoli and simmer until just tender.

Purée in a food processor then season and serve.
