What attracted me first to the recipe was the lack of cream. It is quick simple elegant and very tasty. My husband loved the recipe and I plan to pass this one onto my mother-in-law. I served each heaping bowl with a few exgra crumbles of the cheese on top as garnish.
Fantastic and simple. You really have to be a fan of blue cheese to like this. I added a minced clove of garlic about 30 seconds before adding the vegetables. Don't forget to season with salt and pepper. When adding the cheese I added a dash of red pepper flakes to give it a little bite. It was perfect. Must have some chewy crusty bread to dip with. Fantastic! Thanks.
YUM! YUM! YUM! I have been pining for 9 years for the soup I fell in love with while studying abroad in Cambridge England so I was so shocked and happy to find a broccoli & stilton soup recipe here. When I started making it I was worried that I had built it up too much in my head and I didn't want to be disappointed. I WASN'T! This is a great recipe. I made it exactly as stated but I think maybe the potatoes I used were a little big because it came out a bit thick. I just added another cup of broth and it was awesome. I served it with french bread and butter. Simple and perfect! This recipe didn't even need extra salt & pepper.
My husband went nuts when he tasted this! He can't stop eating it. I added garlic and an extra can of chicken broth because it was very thick. I also added extra stilton---just because I love it. I am going to make this for my gourmet New Years Eve dinner I am making for friends.
I thought this soup was great. I love blue cheese (and HATE broccoli) and I had some broccoli in the fridge to use up so I thought I'd try it out. I added some celery garlic and cauliflower and seasoned with white and black pepper. It was fantastic. My husband liked it too. I'll definitely make this again! Did I mention that I hate broccoli?
This is a hearty vegetable soup that is also tasty thanks to the excellent blue cheese. It can be slightly bland if your eating it as an entree though. Adding a whole red bell pepper (makes it a little sweeter and more colorful) and a tablespoon finely chopped garlic with the veggies and the red pepper flakes will give it that extra bite. I have also been known to add an ounce or two more stilton than the original recipe calls for. I even substituted vege broth for the chicken broth and made it for my vegetarian friends though you have to add a bit of salt and pepper to make up for the difference. Overall a great recipe and a great soup!
