  1. Prepare the Broccoli by cutting off any external leaves and by giving it a good wash in cold water. The stalks can be kept in it does not matter how thick they are as this recipe uses the whole head.
  2. Chop the broccoli into florets and then chop the stem into 2 inch thick chunks- it only needs rough chopping.
  3. Prepare 2 pints of vegetable stock according to the manufacturers instructions.
  4. Using a large heavy bottomed sacuepan which has a tight fitting lid- pour the stock into the saucepan.
  5. Add the Broccoli and simmer for about twenty minutes or until tender.
  6. Once the Broccoli is cooked put it through a blender . I usually do this in two goes,rather than fill the blender right to the top. If you do not have a blender you can "mash" the broccoli through a sieve, but it is quite hard work.
  7. Return the soup to the saucepan and stir to make sure that it an ebven thickness.
  8. Chop the stilton up into small peices and add to the soup.
  9. Once the Stiton cheese has melted thoroughly; stir the soup and serve with hot fresh bread and butter.

I think you would find it slightly salty but with an edge- if you like broccoli and cheese soup I guess you would like it with stilton

I know I love broccoli cheese soup, but I have never had stilton cheese. Now, you have me curious as to what it tastes like.

The thing is if you make it yourself you can add just as much as cheese as you need- I always watch the salt content as if they have a lot of Stilton it can be a bit too salty

Movie Master- Thanks for the visit- the best thing about this recipe is that as long as you have a blender it is quick and easy and also uses the stalks which are so often discarded

I have had cream of broccoli soup made with cheese before but never with stilton. An interesting suggestion.
