Broccoli soup with blue cheese toast

This is a creamy soup with the taste of broccoli which goes very well together with fried bread with blue cheese and roasted nuts. (The recipe is inspired by a recipe from the magazine Mersmak, from 2011.)

Serves 4

Broccoli Soup

700 g broccoli, the heads split into smaller florets and the stalks sliced
1 onion, coarsely chopped
3 dl cream
1 tsp herb salt
0.5 tsp ground black pepper
1 pinch of ground nutmeg
Sunflower sprouts as topping
Oil for frying

Heat the oil in a pan. Fry the sliced broccoli stems for a couple of minutes. Add the onion and broccoli florets and fry for another couple of minutes. Add the cream and spices and let simmer for approximately 5 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and blend to a smooth soup with a hand blender. Serve it topped with sunflower sprouts and together with blue cheese toast (recipe below).

Blue Cheese Toast

8 slices of bread
150 g blue cheese, sliced
60 grams of walnuts
Olive oil for frying

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the walnuts for a few minutes until they become darker brown. Put them aside. Fry the bread in oil until it gets browned on both sides. Add blue cheese slices and roasted walnuts on the bread.
