This is the most delicious soup – it’s perfect on cold, rainy winter days. It’s a wonderful bowl of goodness. This is my friends Mam’s recipe, I pre-order it now whenever she comes down to stay and managed to pry the recipe out of her head the other day after she presented me with a huge flask of the magical concoction.
3 heads of brocolli
3 sticks of celery
2 large potatoes
2-3 litres of chicken stock (3 stock cubes, can be vegetable if vegetarian)
280g stilton cheese
– Peel and roughly chop all the vegetables. Place in a saucepan along with the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
– Roughly chop the stilton and add to the pan. Stir and simmer for a further 20 minutes.
– Transfer to a liquidizer (I have a Vitamix but a NutriBullett or similar will work perfectly here too) and blitz. Re-heat and eat immediately or store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
