1 Prep vegetables

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Chop the broccoli into florets (separate 1/3 of the florets). Finely chop its stem. Peel and slice the carrot into thin disks. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic. Grate the cheddar and the mature cheddar.

2 Start soup

Heat a soup pot over a medium heat with a drizzle of oil. Fry the onion with a pinch of salt for 3 min. Add the chopped broccoli stem and 2/3 of the florets. Add the carrot and garlic, and fry for 3 min further.

3 Add and simmer

Add the paprika powder and black pepper. Add the measured water and stock cube. Bring to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for 10-15 min until the carrots have softened.

4 Fry mushrooms

Meanwhile, clean the mushrooms with a cloth, knife or brush (don't wash them). Heat a pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Fry the mushrooms for 5-6 min until browned and crispy. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

5 Toast bread

Add the bread slices to a lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil and bake in the oven for 5 min or until crispy and golden. Top the toasted bread slices with the fried mushrooms.

6 Finish soup

Meanwhile, puree the soup with a hand-held blender. Add the reserved broccoli florets to the pureed soup, and cook the soup for 3-5 min further (keep the florets slightly crunchy). Finally add the measured cream and the cheddar cheeses. Stir until the cheeses have melted. Serve the soup with the mushroom toasties on the side.
