Broccoli, Cannellini Bean & Cheddar Soup

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (389 votes)

White beans pureed into this broccoli soup make it extra creamy so you don't need heaps of cheese to do the job. Serve with a crunchy whole-grain roll and a glass of winter ale.

Great Begginings

This one has vegetarian potential!

I started with a basic mirepoix (can any soup really begin otherwise?).

Added white pepper and HOT Dijon mustard (not American mustard labeled "Dijon" but mustard actually ~from~
Dijon: hot hot hot).

Did the immersion blender-magic-thing.

Added steamed fresh broccoli. Grated Parmesan. Crusty French baguettes.

Love the idea of a broco/cheddar soup that doesn't rely *quite* so heavily on cheese, cheese, and more cheese.

Great starting point!

Recommended with a few tweaks to your taste.
Doubled the cheese, used all broth, sautéed onions and garlic. Needed a little extra salt. Oh, used garbanzo beans so it was probably a little heavier. Very tasty !!
