Broccoli and Stilton Soup

IMG_0290wtmk

Well, after taking some time off for Easter, I thought it was about time that I took over the mantle of chef from Tracee and made this Broccoli and Stilton Soup.

This is a quick and easy recipe, providing a rich and creamy soup that gives a really cheesy hit.  Very few ingredients, a great opportunity to use up fridge leftovers.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large Broccoli heads
  • 1 small red onion
  • 150g Stilton cheese
  • 500ml water
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • Salt/Pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Put all ingredients into a soup maker.
  • Set soup maker to 21 min smooth setting.
  • Serve and enjoy.  If using a saucepan, saute the onion, add remaining ingredients.  Wait until broccoli florets are cooked.  Blitz and serve.

We served ours with homemade croutons.  Not very slimming, but considering its the Easter holiday, I thought a treat was in order – can’t be saintly all the time 😉
