Ingredients

  • a splash of olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 300g cooked Brussels sprouts
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 650ml vegetable stock
  • 4 tbsp single cream
  • 100g mature cheddar, grated, plus extra to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium pan and soften the onions over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, roughly chop half the sprouts. Cut the remaining sprouts into halves or quarters, depending on their size
  2. Add the garlic to the pan with the onions and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the chopped sprouts and stock, cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Take the pan off the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  3. Purée the soup. Stir in the cream, the remaining sprouts and the cheese. Season and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a little grated cheese.

Tip

A simple garnish of cooked sprout leaves (whole or finely shredded), a sprinkle of cheese and a drizzle of oil takes this soup from everyday to extra special.
