Broccoli Champ

Cheesy, creamy, oniony goodness… and filling and comforting to boot! Has anyone ever had traditional Irish champ? It’s a scrummy dish of potatoes, sweated leeks, butter cream and cheese. I wanted to twist it up with greens and broccoli is so beautiful at the moment AND is a fantastic partner with cheese.


Broccoli Champ

1 Head Broccoli

1/2 Head Cauliflower

1 Bunch Bok Choy

1 small onion sliced finely

50 grams butter

1/3 cup cream

1/2 cup cheese of choice (i used Colby)

Salt and pepper to taste



In boiling salted water, partly cook the broccoli and cauliflower florets for approx 5 minutes. At the very end throw in the bok choy too, it only needs a slight wilting.

Drain the vegetables and set aside. In the same pot put the butter and sliced onions and gently cook for 3 minutes. Add back the cooked vegetables and add the cream, cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for a further 3 minutes until the cream has reduced slightly.

When serving add more grated cheese on top. Delicious! I served mine with Blackened Southern Fried Chicken.
