Ingredients

olive oil

1 tbs

brown onion

1 medium, chopped

broccoli

600 g

vegetable stock

2 cup(s), (500ml)

canned cannellini beans, rinsed, drained

240 g

blue vein cheese

60 g, crumbled

fresh chives

2 tbs

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Meanwhile, separate broccoli florets from stems. Coarsely chop stems. Add stock, beans, broccoli stems and 3/4 cup (185ml) water to pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes or until stems are tender. Add broccoli florets. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes or until florets are just tender. Remove 1 cup florets with a slotted spoon. Cover reserved florets to keep warm.
  3. Using a stick blender or processor, process soup until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Return soup to medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Serve soup topped with reserved broccoli florets and sprinkled with cheese, chives and pepper.
