Ingredients

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter or olive oil
    1 shallot, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 large potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes (1 1/2 cups)
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    3 1/2 cups light, good-tasting vegetable broth
    1 large head of broccoli (12 ounces or 3/4 lb.), cut into small florets

    2/3 cup freshly grated aged Cheddar, plus more for topping
    1 - 3 teaspoons whole grain mustard, to taste

Directions

Melt the butter (or olive oil) in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the shallots, onion, and a big pinch of salt. Saute for a couple minutes. Stir in the potatoes, cover, and cook for about four minutes, just long enough for them to soften up a bit. Uncover, stir in the garlic, then the broth. Bring to a boil, taste to make sure the potatoes are tender, and if they are stir in the broccoli. Simmer just long enough for the broccoli to get tender throughout, 2 - 4 minutes.

Immediately remove the soup from heat and puree with an immersion blender. Add half the cheddar cheese and the mustard (a little bit a a time). If you are going to add any creme fraiche, this would be the time to do it. Now add more water or broth if you feel the need to thin out the soup at all. Taste and add more salt if needed.

Serve sprinkled with the remaining cheese.

Serves 5.
