Winter Warmer: Broccoli and Potato Soup

You can't beat a good old soup to warm you up on a cold day, can you? Through December, we promised to show you some of our very favourite winter warmer recipes, and here's my fave! Behold, because this is pretty much what I consider my signature dish.

This gorgeous soup is one that I made really regularly during my time at University. It's relatively quick and easy to make, and it warms you up so well! Seriously, if I can make this, anyone can!

How to make this lovely winter warmer soup:

Servings: 4

Preparation time: Approximately 20 minutes

Cooking time: Around 20 minutes


  • 1 broccoli (I used frozen as it's what we had in, but you can use fresh if you want to - of course!)

  • 3 potatoes (I used about 6-8 Charlotte potatoes, as they were what we had at the time!)

  • 1 onion

  • A clove of garlic

  • A little pinch of grated cheese

  • Salt and pepper for seasoning

  • 1 pint of vegetable stock

  • Oil for frying

  • SECRET INGREDIENT: Paprika! (Not so secret anymore though, huh?)

Ingredients For Brocolli and Potato Soup, Homemade Soup Ingredients,

Little tip: The soup is great hot, but you can let it cool and then freeze it. It's great if you make a little extra because you've always got a bowl handy in the freezer for cold days when you can't be bothered to cook! Just re-heat it properly and enjoy!

Homemade Soup, Broccoli and Potato Soup Recipe,


  • Chop your onion and garlic into small pieces and your potatoes into square chunks.

  • Lightly fry the onion and garlic in oil.

  • When they're softened, add the potato too.

  • Add seasoning. (And some paprika if you want a spicy kick!)

  • Pop the broccoli into the pan and put the lid on to let it all sweat for a few minutes.

  • Add the vegetable stock, stir, and then pop the lid back on.

  • Check and stir every few minutes.

  • Sprinkle the cheese on top and stir it in.

  • To check it's ready, press a potato chunk with the edge of your spoon, and if it splits, it's ready!

  • Now, you can choose to have the soup chunky, or you can blitz it with a mixer like I do.

  • Enjoy!
