    Jen T's Note:

    I saw this being made on TV (AWW) and thought it looked really good. On the programme they said to serve with toasted slices of french bread which were topped with crumbled blue cheese and grilled. I didn't have any on hand so I topped mine with parmesan cheese. I also, the second time round added some chopped bacon and simmered for another 15mins after I had blended the soup. You could also top each bowl of soup with a spoon of cream for a special occasion.

      Quick and tasty soup! I topped with a bit of Parmesan and left out the bacon. This made a yummy and healthy lunch. Thanks Jen!

      I have just inhaled two bowls of this soup. Yummo! I used a very large potato (300 grams), 1 cup of diced bacon, and a little extra broccoli and onion. I added the bacon with the potato, broccoli and stock (because I hadn't read the instructions thoroughly) and cooked it all for 30 minutes. I put parmesan on top, but will use blue cheese in future. Now excuse me while I go have a third bowl.
