Rachel’s Broccoli Soup with Dubliner Toasts

video-broccoli

I adore this delicious and nutritious soup. It’s great either for family suppers or for a dinner party. The soup can be frozen and the Dubliner toasts prepared in advance, then grilled at the last moment. Ideal if you need a meal in an instant. Rachel Allen

Ingredients:
  • THE SOUP:
  • 2 tbsp Kerrygold Salted Butter
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 head of broccoli, with stalk
  • 3 1/2–4 1/4 cup hot vegetable (or chicken) stock
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • THE DUBLINER TOASTS:
  • 8 slices good-quality white bread
  • 3 oz Dubliner Cheese, finely grated
Directions:

 

Melt the butter in a medium to large saucepan, and add the potatoes and onion, salt and pepper. Cover with a piece of wax paper and sweat over a gentle heat for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the broccoli florets from the stalk. Using a small knife, remove the outer layer of skin from the stalk and discard, then chop the stalk into 1/2-inch pieces. Add to the onion and potato, cover and sweat for a further 5 minutes.  Add the hot stock to the potatoes, onion and broccoli stalk, bring up to a boil, then add the chopped broccoli florets. Boil without the lid over a high heat for 4–5 minutes until soft, then add the cream. Remove from the heat, puree in a blender and season to taste.To make the Dubliner toasts, toast the bread on both sides, sprinkle with grated Dubliner Cheese and pop under a hot grill or into a hot oven for 2 minutes or until the cheese melts. Cut the toast into fingers and serve on the side with the soup.

Dark Chocolate Apricot Cookie Pizza

chocolate-apricot-pizza-3

Prep: 1 Hour

Cook: 20 Minutes

Serves: 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 4 ounces Kerrygold Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 8 ounces of dark chocolate, chopped

Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 1 minute, until nice and creamy.

Slowly stream in the sugar to the butter, while beating constantly.

Next, add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet in 3 batches, mixing between each addition.

Gather the dough into a ball, press it flat into a disk, and wrap it in plastic wrap.

Refrigerate the dough for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350.

Roll the dough out into a 12” circle on a piece of parchment paper.

Transfer the parchment paper to a baking pan, and bake the cookie pizza until set, about 18 minutes. The edges should start to turn golden brown. The center may be a bit puffy, but it will settle as it cools.

Let the cookie pizza completely cool before proceeding.

Spread the apricot jam on the pizza. Top with the chopped chocolate and slice into wedges before serving.

Use the sugar cookie crust as a base, and top with all of your favorite toppings. A cream cheese frosting with sprinkles would be a great kids’ version (or an adult that eats like a kid). If you love white chocolate, it would be great here alone, or mixed in with the dark chocolate.
