Last Broccoli From The Garden

Having finished up all the good broccoli heads from the garden during the summer, the plants kept giving. Once the heads were taken, the offshoots start flowering – broccoli spears.

I am now finishing up those, and also the broccoli stalks, which I find are also good eating, although they need more cooking and are less interesting. The picture of them looks extremely unappetising; however, they do make a very good soup.

This was a mixture of spears and stalks and some good stilton cheese. A finely chopped potato, added at the beginning, thickened it nicely, and some cream finished it off. I then strained it through a small colander to remove any bits of stalk that hadn’t cooked down; you could use a sieve, but I like some texture to my soup. Just not twigs.
