How long will it take?
What’s the serving size?
What do I need?
1 large onion, peeled and roughly chopped
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
600ml vegetable or chicken stock
70g Cashel Blue
150ml fresh cream
Bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
Sprig of thyme, finely chopped
How do I make it?
Place chopped onions in a saucepan with butter, cover with baking paper or foil and sauté while you prepare the potatoes. Add the potatoes to the onions, cover and sauté for a further 2 minutes.
Add the stock, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes until potatoes are turning tender, then add chopped broccoli, celery and leeks. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the fresh herbs, and cook for a further 3 minutes - you are aiming to just cook but still maintain the freshness of the green vegetables.
Add fresh cream and Cashel Blue cheese and blend until smooth.
Serve immediately with a piece of Cashel Blue added to the top of the soup for extra texture, colour and flavour.
