Chop and onion and break up the broccoli. Fry onion gently in some butter until translucent. Add broccoli & stir fry for a minute or so. Add about 1 oint veg stock, reduce heat, season & keave to simmer for about 20 minutes.
Leave to cool then blitz - check seasoning & reheat. Serve with a swirl of creme fraiche or cream

i have made it without the potato to thicken though by adding tablespoon flour when sauté the onion then mix really well with stock thickens it nicely

A stock cube is fine. You can also put in Parmesan rind if you have any (take it out before you blend the soup though).
