    Serves: 2 

    • 2 large heads broccoli
    • 1 Camembert cheese
    • 1 Knorr® vegetable stock cube
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:5min cooling  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Cut the broccoli heads into small pieces. Place them into a saucepan with water and vegetable stock cube, bring it to the boil; simmer for 10 minutes or so until broccoli is tender.
    2. Pour the broccoli and about 1L of the water into a blender. Blend until smooth. You may want to add some more water if too thick.
    3. Pour the smooth broccoli mix into a saucepan, bring it to a simmer. Cut the Camembert into chunks and add to the mixture.
    4. Stir until the Camembert has melted into the soup and it becomes more creamy and velvety. Taste and season to taste with salt and pepper.


    It is best to start with a litre of water and to add some little by little until you obtain a smooth texture.

    Serving suggestion

    Serve with a tablespoon of creme fraiche and garlic bread.

Added one finely chopped zuchinni and two heads of chopped broccoli, minus the main stalk. Added one cup of white wine. Added 1L of pre-made Vegetable stock. Pinch of white pepper; tsp of freshly ground black pepper; tsp of salt. Simmered then blended with blend stick. Added cheese last with 2 tblsp of top shelf thickened cream.  -  18 Oct 2014
