Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Winter has arrived, and there's nothing better than keeping warm with a bowl of creamy soup for lunch or dinner.


This recipe is a favourite amongst our team. It's delicious and so easy to make.


Why not give it a go for dinner tonight?

(Serves 6)

Ingredients

1 onion, chopped

1 leek, sliced

1 potato, chopped

1.5L chicken/vegetable stock

2 small broccoli head, chopped

80g Stilton cheese, crumbled

Olive oil and toasted baguette to serve

Method

Heat some oil in a pot, add onion, leek and potato and stir until starts to soften. Add stock and cover, allowing to simmer for approximately 8 minutes. Add broccoli and simmer for another 3 minutes.


Remove pot from heat and with a handheld blender, process until smooth. Add the Stilton to the soup and season to taste.


Serve the soup in bowls with drizzled olive oil and toasted baguette. Enjoy!


Note - if you don't enjoy the strong flavour of blue cheeses, substitute the Stilton for a tasty cheese instead. And of course if you can't find Stilton in your supermarket, you can simply use a different type of blue cheese.
