  3. Add the chopped broccoli stalk, but not the flower yet. Continue to cook for a further 5 minutes, until the potato is soft.
  4. Add the rest of the broccoli and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir through the milk and return to a simmer.
  5. Blend the soup until smooth and season to taste. To serve, grill the remainder of the bacon until crispy and crumble it on top.
