     ' If you are looking for a soup that is packed full of flavour then this  traditional Broccoli and Stilton soup  is for you. '

I love soup for its versatility and that familiar  feeling it gives you on a cold winters evening. Soup is also a great way to use up leftovers.... 

 
Method : 
  •  Heat the oil in a large pot on a stove, then add the onion and spring onion. Cook on low for about 5 minutes until the onions are soft.
  • Add the Celery and the Butter, cover and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Make up 1.2 litres of vegetable stock using either two veg stock cubes or 1 tablespoon of vegetable bouillon.
  • Cut up the Broccoli so that the stalk is chopped into chunks and the head into rough florets.
  • Remove the lid from the pot then add the Vegetable Stock and the Broccoli Stalk. Mix the pot up with a wooden spoon then cover and simmer for 10 - 20 minutes so that the veg is soft.
  • Add the rest of the Broccoli then continue cooking for 5 -10 minutes.
  • When the broccoli is cooked crumble in the Stilton Cheese and simmer until the cheese has melted.
  • Season with Black Pepper
  • Remove the soup from the heat and allow it to cool down for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the stalk from the soup , then put the soup into a food processor.
  • Process the soup so that the soup is smooth.
  • If you are using the cream add it now to the food processor.
