Ingredients

1 Bakers Delight Continental Baguette
100g butter
2 brown onions
2 large broccoli heads with stems
1 large russet potato
2 garlic cloves
1L chicken stock
500ml water
Salt & Pepper to taste
150ml thickened cream
250g grated cheese
50g butter
1 tbsp chilli flakes (optional garnish)
Basil leaves (optional garnish)
Olive oil (optional garnish)

Method

STEP 1

Roughly chop the onions and finely chop the garlic. Slice off and discard the rough bottom ends of broccoli stalks. Use a vegetable peeler to peel off the tough outer skin of the stalk then roughly chop the broccoli into 3-5cm chunks. Peel the potato and cut into 3cm pieces

STEP 2

Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven or soup pot over medium-low heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes. Add the garlic, onions, potato, broccoli, salt, pepper and chicken stock. Bring to the boil for 5 minutes, stir and then cook covered on a medium heat for 15 minutes or until the potato has fully cooked through

STEP 3

Meanwhile, preheat the oven grill to 180 degrees. Slice the baguette into 1.5cm slices and lay on a wire rack. Top each piece with butter and half the cheese. Pop in the oven for approx 4-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Keep a close eye on it so the bread doesn’t burn

STEP 4

Turn the heat off the soup and use a stick blender or a food processor to blend the ingredients into a smooth consistency. Add the cream, and remaining cheese (leaving some for garnish) and stir until melted

STEP 5

Garnish the soup with the remaining cheese, chilli flakes, olive oil and basil. Dip the delicious, crispy and cheesy toasts into the soup and enjoy!
