Wintery Broccoli and Stilton Soup

20131223_204903Everyone loves a cheeseboard at christmas but we always end up chucking the stilton away. I decided to make a lovely broccoli and stilton soup, a winter classic. Here is my recipe, it’s dead simple and can be frozen if you make extra.

You will need 2 small potatoes, 2 small onions, butter, 300g broccoli, 40g stilton, 20ml milk, 1 veg stock cube dissolved in 450ml boiling water, salt and pepper, large pan, blender.20131223_195545

First of all peel your spuds, dice your onion and chop your broccoli and potato into chunks. Melt a tablespoon of butter into the pan and add your onion, cook for 3 minutes.

20131223_200629Add your broccoli and stock to the pan, bring the stock to the boil and then simmer for 15 minutes. Add the potatoes and cook for another half an hour. Then crumble your stilton into the pan, stir and cook for another 5 minutes.

This is one of my favourite soups in winter, and I really love soup! It doesn’t have too many ingredients and it makes a really tasty meal.

Enjoy, Love Mrs Gardom
