Broccoli and Stilton soup

This soup is not Scandinavian at all, but something I have embraced in my new country. The combination of sweet broccoli and tangy stilton is lovely and makes this soup both filling and comforting (no wonder considering the amout of cheese…)

Although containing a lot of cheese, there is just a hint of Stilton in the flavour, and that is exactly how I like it, and this way you can serve it to non-Stilton lovers too.

 

Broccoli and Stilton soup, serves 4

750 g broccoli, including the stem, cut in small pieces

water

600-700 ml homemade chicken stock, hot

50 ml water

150 ml single cream

75 g Stilton

salt, white pepper

Cook the broccoli until very soft in salted water. Drain. Add the stock and blend until smooth. Add water and cream and bring to the boil. Add the cheese (crumbled) and let it melt while stirring. Season with salt and pepper.
