Happy Tuesday! Now, the story with this broccoli and stilton soup, is that I was going to post it just after Christmas. I had full intentions of doing it then, because it’s usually after Christmas that we have a load of leftover Christmas cheese’s in our fridge haven’t we?

Except on this occasion, just after Christmas, there wasn’t any leftover stilton. We ate it all. 😮

So, here I bring to you today, the recipe broccoli and stilton soup that was destined for January!

But seriously you should just have this at any time of the year. In fact all year round if possible because it just tastes so good!

Plus, as I write this, it is actually snowing here in Glasgow again, so it looks like I definitely jinxed the weather when I made this bulgur chickpea salad recipe a coupe of weeks ago. Back to soups we go!

Ingredients
  • Low fat cooking spray
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 300 g broccoli florets
  • 1 L vegetable stock
  • 200 g low fat soft cheese
  • 50 g blue stilton cheese broken up
  • Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper
Instructions
  1. Spray a large saucepan about 5 times with the low fat cooking spray. Turn the heat on high and when the oil begins to bubble a little, turn the heat down to medium.
  2. Sauté the onion and garlic for about 4 – 5 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid any sticking to the saucepan.
  3. Add the broccoli florets and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil and then simmer for approximately 15 – 20 minutes.
  4. Blitz the soup in a blender or a food processor.
  5. Return the soup to the pan and bring it back to the boil and then turn down to simmer and then stir in the soft cheese first and then the blue stilton.
  6. Stir the soup well to ensure all the cheese has melted, season to taste and then serve in bowls with fresh crusty bread.

You know we love our soups and they’re still such a big thing in Scotland so I make no excuse for lots of wholesome healthy soup recipes on my blog. This one in particular at only 293 calories per serving is no exception. I still swear that changing from sandwiches every lunchtime to soups was one of the key changes that helped us both to lose weight and we still keep it off.

I’m also entering this soup for Jo’s Kitchen #SuperSoup March competition.

I’ll be back again tomorrow with a bread.

A bread?

Yes a bread, a lovely wholemeal cob loaf that is needed for the recipe I’m bringing to you on Thursday. A recipe made from some of the freshest Scottish ingredients we can get!

In fact, if you wait until tomorrow for the bread recipe, you could have it with this soup? #justsaying!

See you again tomorrow! 😀

  1. I need to make this soup! I am really looking forward to the amazing cheeses over there — you guys do Stilton best! I call myself a “soup enthusiast” because my ears perk up every time I hear the word! I would probably eat it every single meal if I could, which really, I guess technically I could lol. Thanks for sharing, Neil!

      Thanks Erin 🙂 If you like cheese you will find an amazing cheese shop up the west end of Glasgow, plenty to choose from!

      As for soup, well I’m so glad you are a “soup enthusiast”, like myself, and you are definitely coming to the right part of the world for that! 😀

      I can’t believe you’ve had deep fried pizza 😮 , but yeah I’m guilty myself too. Once 😉

  2. Well it is snowing outside, so seems a perfect day to have some soup to me! In fact, I think I shall be taking some to the office!

      Rain, hail, snow or shine Susie I’d still happily eat soup all day long and for every meal. 🙂

      It’s such a convenient thing to take into the office too, don’t you think? Plus it’s something to really look forward to. If I didn’t take my soup for lunch with me, I would be seriously stuck trying to decide what to buy from the local shops. I need to plan, I’m not very good at being spontaneous. 😉

  3. this sounds delish! And normally in March I wouldn’t be making soup, but it’s freakishly cold here in Texas for the remainder of the week. So off I go to get Stilton!

      I know what you mean Jennifer, normally I’d be looking to start making more salad recipes at this time of year!

      But it’s gone from double digit temperatures 2 weeks ago down to freezing and snow showers again, so it’s back onto the soups!

      If you make this soup I hope you enjoy it! 😀

  4. looks and sounds fantastic!

  5. Well this speaks to me. I love blue cheese and broccoli. I’ve never combined them into a soup before, but goodness, I think I will have to now. It looks and sounds absolutely delicious!

      Thanks Meg. 🙂 Yeah this is a recipe that I wasn’t sure would go together and I was quite surprised when it did!

      Hope you get a chance to make this sometime. 😀

  6. Love how you take the simplest ingredients and turn them into some incredible soup, Neil! This looks so creamy and comforting!

      Thank you Shashi, I amazed myself at how well the broccoli goes with the stilton! 😀

      Broccoli has been on offer at my local supermarket for a while now and so I was trying out different recipes, this one was one of the better ones 😉

  7. Looks delicious! Thank you for entering #SuperSoup
