Method

  1. Heat the rapeseed oil in a large saucepan and then add the onions. Cook on a medium heat until soft. Add a splash of water if the onions start to catch.
  2. Add the celery, leek, potato and a knob of butter. Stir until melted, then cover with a lid. Allow to sweat for 5 minutes. Remove the lid.
  3. Pour in the stock and add any chunky bits of broccoli stalk. Cook for 10 – 15 minutes until all the vegetables are soft.
  4. Add the rest of the broccoli and cook for a further 5 minutes. Carefully transfer to a blender and blitz until smooth. Stir in the stilton, allowing a few lumps to remain. Season with black pepper and serve.

I didn't really like this soup at all. It lacked something. The cheese was nice in the soup though

Absolutely scrummy! Like a previous post I also don't like to eat blue cheese but in this soup it tastes fantastic, so I would highly recommend giving it try before substituting another cheese.

I made this soup for my friends for lunch and we all loved it. It was easy to make and perfect to eat on a cold day and over good catch up. Will be making this again (and again) :)

Well, I can only describe this as The Canine's Gonads. I never had any celery and as you cannot buy a single stalk (what would I do with the rest of the bunch...), I used extra leek. I usually wouldn't go anywhere near Stilton cheese; It's that mould thing, puts me right off. However, I made this and it was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.

Left out the celery and used an extra leek instead - turned out absolutely delicious - restaurant quality! My wife loved it even though she's not a stilton fan. Highly recommended.

I added a little cream too, and didn't use leek as I didn't have any. Turned out gorgeous. Thick, creamy and just the right flavour. Didn't have to add any salt, just the perfect balance between vegetables and the stilton. Will definitely make again!
