    Add the broccoli and stock. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 mins or until broccoli is very tender. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 mins to cool slightly.
  3. Step 3

    Add half the cheese to the broccoli mixture. Place in a blender and blend until smooth. Return to the saucepan and place over low heat. Season with salt and pepper.
