Broccoli Soup -- Gordon Ramsay
Chef Gordon Ramsay shares his recipe for broccoli soup -- intensely flavorful with only a few ingredients!"Broccoli soup is my all-time favorite food, and this recipe didn't disappoint. I was unsure if it'd have enough flavor given that it's just broccoli and water, but boy was I wrong. This soup has a lovely, mellow, full broccoli taste, without any cream, potatoes or excessive salt needed. Do remember to salt the boiling water liberally, though, and don't forget the black pepper. The goat cheese really adds a nice flavor dimension as well - do follow the recommendation and add a slice to the soup bowl." - subhuman85

Broccoli Soup -- Gordon Ramsay Preparation
Cut the florets off the heads of broccoli. Cut the stems into similarly sized pieces. Add all of the broccoli -- florets and stems -- into a pot of rapidly-boiling, salted water (2 tablespoons salt in 5 quarts of water). Cover. Cook 3.5 to 4 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, put the cooked broccoli pieces into a blender. Fill blender about halfway with cooking liquid. Blend carefully since it's hot. Add more cooking liquid as necessary to achieve the desired consistency. Check seasonings.
If desired, add cheese (goat cheese or cheddar cheese) to the bottom of the bowl before pouring the soup in. Serve, drizzled with olive oil if desired.
Add some shredded cheddar cheese to the bottom of the bowl before putting the soup in for a simple, tasty broccoli cheese soup.
