All the ingredients required to make this lovely winter soup. I used two little stock pots from Continental to make the 1L chicken stock, and didn’t bother to peel the potatoes.

Method:
1. In a large pot combine chicken stock, carrots, potatoes and onion powder. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Add broccoli, cover and simmer for an additional 10 minutes
3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large sauce pan. Whisk in the flour and cook for another minute. Whisk in milk and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
4. Remove from heat, add cheese and stir until it is all melted. Add salt and pepper.
5. Pour cheese sauce into the large pot and stir until well combined.
6. Season to taste and serve topped with bacon pieces and lots of crusty bread.
