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.

 

Roast squash, chilli and coriander soup @ndc.ie

 

Roast-Squash-Chilli-Coriander-Soup

Chef: Annie Bell.

Yields 6 Servings

This roast vegetable soup that is full of South American pizzazz would be nowhere without its finishing flourish of soured cream. As punchy as it is simple, there is no careful stirring or frying, instead the caramelisation takes place in the oven and the flavours concentrate in the process.

 

Ingredients checklist for soup
1.5–1.6kg butternut squash, skin and seeds discarded, and cut into chunks
2 large onions, peeled, halved and sliced
4 vine tomatoes, halved
1 medium–hot red chilli (5–7cm long)
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
900 ml chicken or vegetable stock
Ingredients checklist to serve
2 tbsp soured cream
coarsely chopped coriander
pickled piri-piri or jalapeño peppers (optional)
Instructions

1.Preheat the oven to 200˚C fan/220˚C/gas mark 6. Arrange the squash, onions and
tomatoes in a couple of large roasting pans so that they fit in a crowded single layer, adding the chilli to one. Drizzle a couple of tablespoons of oil over each roasting pan and season with salt. Roast for 55 minutes, stirring halfway through.

2.Remove from the oven, and if any of the onion strands are particularly dark, discard these.

3.Scrape out the inside of the chilli, discarding the seeds if possible, and liquidise the vegetables with the stock in batches in a blender. Pass through a sieve into a saucepan.

4.Gently reheat and serve with a spoon of soured cream, some chopped coriander and pickled chilli if wished.
