Joseph's Simple Broccoli Soup

1 small head of fresh broccoli.
(no bigger than your hand)
1 can of chicken broth.
Salt and pepper

really good unfiltered EVOO
sharp cheddar or goat cheese
toasted nut of your choice (I like pine nuts)


Bring the stock to a boil in a pot.
Trim the floret's off the broccoli stem, take the stem and peel off the thick skin.
Rough chop the stem and floret's (just a once over with the knife)
add alll of the broccoli to the boiling stock and put a lid on it and cook for 5-8 minutes until really soft. When cooked add all contents of the pot into a blender,  put the lid on and zip on high until their is no more specs of green and very smooth. Add salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste at the end then zip again for a sec and taste. Pour soup in a bowl and drizzle some of the olive oil on top then place the cheese and nut's how ever and where ever you want.
