How long will it take?

20 minutes

What’s the serving size?

Serves 4

What do I need?

  • 28g butter
  • 1 large onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 600ml vegetable or chicken stock
  • 420g broccoli
  • 250g leek
  • 200g celery
  • 70g Cashel Blue
  • 150ml fresh cream
  • Bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Sprig of thyme, finely chopped

How do I make it?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Add fresh cream and Cashel Blue cheese and blend until smooth.
  4. Serve immediately with a piece of Cashel Blue added to the top of the soup for extra texture, colour and flavour.
