Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

This warming soup is a big favourite in the house and with friends. I took about 4 litres of it to a dinner party for 6 as a starter and the guests got to third helpings by the time the soup was all gone. Like most soups, it’s incredibly simple to make. This recipe serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 350g broccoli
  • 400ml ┬ávegetable stock
  • 25g butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 50g Stilton, crumbled, or to taste
  • 100ml creme fraiche
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch freshly grated nutmeg

Method

  • Chop the broccoli into chunks, florets and stalks.
  • Steam the broccoli in a pan until tender.
  • Whilst the broccoli is steaming, fry the onion in the butter for about a minute
  • Shove the broccoli, stock, onion, Stilton into a blender and blend until lumpy
  • Add the creme fraiche. Blend again until smooth
  • Transfer the soup to a saucepan and simmer.
  • Add nutmeg and pepper to taste
