This broccoli and stilton soup is vegetarian, gluten free and low calorie. Its a cheesy tasting delicious bowl of comfort giving you a warm glow at any time of the year. You would never know that this is only 293 calories a serving!
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!
- 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
- 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.
- Sauté the onion and garlic for about 4 – 5 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid any sticking to the saucepan.
- Add the broccoli florets and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil and then simmer for approximately 15 – 20 minutes.
- Blitz the soup in a blender or a food processor.
- 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.
- 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.
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! 😀
