Broccoli and Stilton Soup

By | March 22, 2017

Broccoli and stilton soup is my absolute favourite. I love cheese, I love soup, and I love blue cheese sauces generally. So, this is fantastic. It’s not something I normally get to have because Hunky Husband doesn’t like it. But, we thought if he made his own, he could control the strength of the cheesiness. So, this one is quite a mild blue cheese flavour. If you want it stronger, just add more cheese. This recipe does contain affiliate links. 

The Bobsy loved this, she wolfed it down. She’s really into dipping at the moment. So, anything she can dip something in is a win. But I was still surprised by how much she enjoyed it. Broccoli and stilton isn’t a flavour you’d think kids would enjoy. Although, she’s isn’t your typical child when it comes to eating, and it is a creamy flavour.

You will need:

  • 1 large Broccoli head
  • 3 Large potatoes
  • 100g Stilton
  • 1 Large onion
  • 150ml Double cream
  • 500ml Vegetable stock
  • 500ml Water
  • Pinch salt and pepper

broccoli and stilton soup ingredients

Peel the potatoes, chop them, the broccoli and onion, and add to a large pan. We use this proper giant pan, which makes it less messy when we use the stick blender.

Add 1 cube of veg stock, made to packet instructions, which is normally around 500ml. We didn’t have vegetable stock, so used chicken. It tasted the same I think! Then, add enough water to cover everything, again around 500ml.

Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Leave for 30 minutes, until the potatoes are soft.

Remove from the heat, and blend with a stick blender, until smooth.

Return to the heat, stir in the double cream. Then, crumble the stilton in, and stir. If I’d done this, I’d have added the whole block! But, 100g is perfect for a mild, creamy taste. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Leave for 10 minutes, stirring regularly, until the cheese has melted.

Serve your broccoli and stilton soup with fresh, crusty bread for the perfect lunch.

    I admit I hate blue cheese, but apparently this is good with cheddar too. #foodiefriday

    • Yes! I’ve never had it with cheddar, but I’ve heard it’s nice

  • I love this soup too, but sometimes find it too rich, so this looks good with not too much cheese in. Def one to give a try xx #FoodieFriday

    • Making it yourself is definitely best if you prefer it milder! X
