  1. 1. Add the butter to a medium pot over a medium heat until it begins to foam. Add in the onion, garlic and potato and fry gently until the onion is soft. Add in the broccoli and stir through. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil.
  2. 2. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until the broccoli is tender. You check this by piercing it with a fork. Take the pot off the heat and, using a hand blender, blitz until smooth. Season with sea salt and ground black pepper and stir through half the cheddar cheese and taste.
  3. 3. Serve the soup in deep bowls with crusty bread and an extra sprinkling of cheddar cheese.
