RECIPE - Brilliant Broccerino Soup

Because our mantra at the moment is 'Eating with Awareness' I'm trying to make life easier by having something really tasty and easy in the fridge that makes lunch a no-brainer, and you can't do much better than a really gorgeous soup. BUT it has to have balls, it has to be a trouper souper, it has to sa-tis-fy. Look no further! Make a load of this, stick it in the fridge and you are, as they say, good to go!


KITCHEN TIME: 5 mins prep, 15 mins cooking


1 tsp light olive oil or other neutral oil

1 red onion, diced

2 cloves of garlic, finely grated

500ml vegetable stock, from a cube

2 heads of broccoli, chopped

Milk as required

1 heaped tsp Dijon mustard (smooth)

50g Pecorino (or Parmesan) cheese, finely grated

Sea salt

Black pepper

PREP TIP: Make this on a Sunday and enjoy a week of easy, healthy lunches.


Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions and garlic and fry gently for 2-3 minutes. Add the stock and then the broccoli. Top up with milk to make sure all the broccoli is well covered. Add the mustard and cheese and season well with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes until the broccoli is tender. Allow to cool a little before blending in a blender, food processor or with a hand blender to a smooth consistency. Eat straight away or it will keep for a few days in a Tupperware container in the fridge. Also freezes well.

SERVING TIP: You can loosen with a little water when serving if required, it does tend to thicken if you have been storing it in the fridge.

Lolz Jodi! I know what you mean. Did you see my demo on Insta stories? I make exactly the same observation!!


This soup is delicious!!!! I have to say, it did not look promising when I poured in the milk. Looked so vile, I almost took a photo to make you laugh at my dire cooking skills. Once whizzed up though, it looks exactly like the above pic and is absolutely the tastiest thing. And so easy, with hardly any ingredients.

That's fantastic to hear!!! Makes my day when I read comments like yours. My main aim is to help people who are a bit stuck in a food rut! So please spread the word about my blog, if I can get enough followers it will really help me get a book deal!!!


Hi Sam, I have just had this delicious soup for my lunch today and it is a real winner!! Simple to make and great to keep in the fridge while I am spending my week working from home! I have been a fan of mid-life kitchen since the book came out and follow you avidly on instagram! Loving this new blog. It is definitely making me think and reminding me of what first attracted me to your approach!! Can't wait for the next book!!

That's exact it Jods. It's finding ways that are doable for you! We all have different lives/pressures/family dynamics and there is no one size fits all. That's what I hope StealthHealth acknowledges, its about providing tools, new approaches and ideas that can be adapted to your life. I know how much you resent kitchen time but there is a middle way!!!
