Broccoli and Stilton Soup Preparation
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.
DINNER PARTY TIP
Reserve an uncooked broccoli floret, cut it into small pieces and blanch in boiling water for 1 minute. Also reserve a small handful of crumbled cheese. Serve the soup in bowls, then scatter with crumbled cheese and broccoli for a stylish garnish.
Creamier the Stilton the better.
