How to make it
Create a gourmet meal at home with this easy Leek, Broccoli and Stilton Soup recipe. Perfect to warm the cockles on a cold Winter’s night.
Gently fry the onion in butter for few minutes. Add the leeks and broccoli and sweat for 5 mins. Next add the stock and simmer until broccoli is cooked but still looking fresh and green.
Add cream and whizz in the blender until smooth. Return the Stilton soup to the pan and gently crumble in the glorious Cropwell Bishop. Serve with a crusty baguette or farmhouse cobber.
