Broccoli Soup -- Gordon Ramsay
We cooked the broccoli soup again and added some fresh tomatoes. The acidity of the tomatoes working with the broccoli and cheddar cheese make for a lovely combination.

Very strong flavor. Mom liked it, but brothers did not. You probably would really have to love (cooked) broccoli to enjoy this soup.

Outstanding soup - rich, velvety and very very moreish. You do need to season well and if you haven't cooked the broccoli until tender or don't blitz when hot, you end up with a grainy soup. You only need a bit of liquid to deliver a deliciously comforting soup. I served this with soft goats cheese and a scattering of parsley and would happily serve this as a starter for a posh dinner.

Yumm. Better with a little cheddar cheese.

I can't imagine this is a Gordon Ramsay recipe. It has a major texture issue and is only as good as the cheese you add.

First time using goat cheese. Definately adds a different little kick to it! I found the goat cheese tasted funny by itself but gave the broccoli soup an interesting creamy flavor! It was great! No need for olive oil. Just adds hidden unnecessary oil/fat to food.

I've made this a few times after I saw him make it on KN or HK, can't remember which. Love it, so much better than typical Broc/cheese soup that you get from the sandwich shops.

Im giving the recipe as its written 3 stars. I thought it was ok, but a little bland -- like watery baby food. I added a small clove of garlic and a about 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil to the blender. With just a couple small adjustments, it was really fabulous. blender. With the adjustment, it went from ok to really fabulous.

Truly delicious and super easy. I might use a hand blender for a bigger batch. Hearty and simply good.

Big big payoff for very little effort. Even the kids love it.

Very good, just make sure you have the correct amount of salt! Remember you can always add water and salt, not take away...

Fabulous! Simple to make for a very healthy lifestyle. My family loved it. Sadly there were no leftovers. Next time I will double it! Thank you

I found it is all about having the right amount of salt and not adding to much of the water when blending the broccoli. Otherwise it was surprisingly really good.

This takes just a little longer than the boiling and the 4 minute period. The stuff you add after gives it the interest.

Best ever and sooooooooo simple

Very simple to make, filling too. Was amazed at how nice it tasted.

This was so easy to make and you can dress it up in countless ways. Try a swirl of red pepper puree or top with parmesean crisps or croutons. I had it just like the original, poured over shredded cheese. I used fresh broccoli from my farm share, the flavor was intense!

I have made this recipe twice, and both times they have been excellent! You can really vary the recipe by adding your own twist, such as changing up the cheese or adding more vegetable toppers. Nonetheless, the base soup itself is flavorful with excellent texture. Nothing will suit you more on a cold winter day than this particular soup!

This tastes like pureed broccoli. Very bland.
fearinglyndsay , 6y ago

I use 1 1/2 tablespoons of salt, which is plenty to my taste. I skip the olive oil addition, but wow is it excellent over some goat cheese chevre. This recipe is a great dinner in 15 minutes, if you have a loaf of bread and use one of those big Costco bags of cleaned and trimmed florets. I think chicken stock could be gilding the lily - try it with H2O first and see how great it is (and cheaper, healthier, more simple.)

It was delicious, easy to make, and fast. I'm the head of house and I loved making it and all twelve members of my family loved it also. Who'd think a carpenter like me could do it. It came out too green but maybe next time I'll get the right colour. Thank you so much Chef.Ramsey. your's truly. Alfredo

This was a really simple recipe, great for someone just starting out, like myself, and it turned out great.
