Cut the florets off the broccoli head and peel the stalk, trying not to waste any of the broccoli; dice the stalk.
Fry the onion in the vegetable oil until soft, without colour, in a large pot. Add the potatoes, broccoli, vegetable stock, seasoning and parsely and cover with the pot lid and simmer until potatoes and broccoli are soft.
Allow to cool slightly and blend until soup is smooth without lumps. Add double cream and stir. Soup may need to be heated slighty before serving.
