This is absolutely delicious. The size of the cauliflower head in proportion to the amount of Stilton is important as it's easy for the cheese flavor to be overpowered (which you really don't want to happen with an ingredient that expensive). Some recipes for this use heavy cream which of course is always good. I ate this with fresh homemade bread;a perfect meal.
I think this is the best recipe i've found for cauliflower and blue cheese. I used approx. 1kg cauliflower head (before the leaves and stalk were removed) and as stilton was sold out in my supermarket this evening i used 150g castello blue which isn't as crumbly - but has the same mild creamy taste as blue stilton. (I'm going to experiment with Danish blue next time);) I also used a little less pepper (I crushed 1 tsp of white and 1 tsp of black pepper corns and used about 3/4 of the total). The sherry addition really adds to the taste.:) Will definitely be reusing this one.:) update: okay i've since tried this with stilton which i find just isn't strong tasting enough and also with danish blue - which turned out to be the exact flavour i was looking for.:) so if you're a blue cheese lover danish blue's your man!:)
This is a very luxurious soup- it's rich enough to stand alone for dinner. Be forewarned though that if you haven't been professionally trained in culinary school the prep time will probably take a bit longer than 15 minutes so plan ahead!
Oh how I hate being the black sheep. We thought this was mediocore. Even though I added almost twice as much cheese than called for it still seemed rather bland so I added more spices including cayenne. Actually the person I thought would not even touch it was our oldest daughter as she does not like any kind of blue cheese however I didn't tell her was was in this soup and she thought it was pretty good.
This was very good. I made several only because I did'nt have the items on hand.Used shallots omitted the leeks.Used 1 cup of half and half.Also used four slices of smoked Fontina cheese which really added to the flavor. I also just mashed the cauliflower and potato right in the pot so much easier I like my soup with a little texture.
I made the soup strictly by the recipe. After all ingredients were cooking I decided that I wanted the soup a little creamier. I added another 1/2 c. of heavy cream. This is a really great recipe for soup lovers. thanks Ken Ken
