After some winter gathering or a party when there is lots of stilton left over, this is the right soup to cuddle your stomach.

Ingredients

  • 100g butter, or any other cooking fat

  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped

  • 1 Medium leek, roughly chopped

  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes, plus extra to garnish

  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves picked

  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

  • 450g broccoli, cut into florets

  • 1L strong vegetable stock or meat stock

  • 120g Stilton, crumbled

  • Herbs to garnish

Directions

  • Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onion for 10min until softened.
  • Add the chilli, thyme, and garlic and cook for 10 mins before adding the broccoli, leek, and stock.
  • Bring up to the boil, then simmer for at least 15 mins, until all the veg is softened.
  • You can also leave in a crockpot overnight. Add half of the stilton and extra butter or fat you wish to add to increase the creaminess.
  • Carefully blend the soup until completely smooth, then check the seasoning.
  • Serve into bowls and crumble the remaining stilton onto the top, drizzle some olive oil and herbs to garnish.
