Gordon Ramsay’s Broccoli Soup Recipe


  • 1 large Broccoli Cluster (as fresh as possible)
  • 3 Teaspoons Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper (4-5 turns on the grind wheel)
  • Water
  • Olive Oil
  • Goat Cheese (2 slices per bowl)
  • Walnuts (about 5 per bowl)


  1. Bring water to a boil in a large stock pot. Add a large pinch of salt (1 – 1 1/2 Tbsp.). Add broccoli and boil rapidly.
  2. Slice the goat cheese.  Dip the knife into the boiling hot water before each slice for even smooth cuts. Cut two slices of goat cheese per bowl being served.
  3. Your broccoli is finished cooking when you can pierce it with little or no effort. Remove the stock pan from the stove burner. DO NOT POUR THE WATER OUT! Use a slotted spoon to add broccoli to a blender but be careful because it’s boiling hot! Pour enough of the water left over from cooking the broccoli to fill the blender 1/4 to 1/3 way. Add a pinch (or more) of salt. Use several pulses on your blender to break the broccoli up and then puree for several seconds.
  4. Add five walnuts to the bottom of a shallow bowl and then place pieces of goat cheese on top of them.
  5. Pour soup into bowl. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and serve at once! Delicious!
