This lovely combination of cauliflower and Stilton cheese makes a thick, warming soup. The cold weather is definitely influencing what I cook at the moment and I am craving nutritious, comforting foods! This is a quick and easy recipe and will be ready in about 30 minutes - perfect for a healthy lunch or dinner.

 

ingredients:

1 cauliflower chopped (including green outer leaves)

2 medium potatoes chopped

1 onion chopped

1 clove garlic

2 bay leaves

2 litres vegetable stock

50g Stilton cheese (but any blue cheese would work well I think)

1 tbs olive oil

juice of half a lemon

salt and pepper to taste

(optional) chopped parsley to garnish


preparation time: 5-10 minutes

cooking time: 25-30 minutes

Step 1: Soften the Potatoes, Onion, Garlic and Bay Leaves

  • heat a large pan then add the olive oil before adding the prepared potatoes, onion, garlic and bay leaves - soften for about 5 minutes

Step 2: Add the Cauliflower and Simmer

  • add the chopped cauliflower, cauliflower leaves and stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 20-25 minutes - until the potatoes and cauliflower are soft and cooked through.

Step 3: Add the Cheese and a Little Bit of Lemon

  • take off the heat and blend until smooth then crumble in the Stilton cheese and the juice of half a lemon which just brightens the taste. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with chopped parsley if you like.  

Step 4: Bon Appetit!

That sounds good! I've never had Stilton cheese. Is it a really strong flavor in the soup?
Thanks. I think it just adds a nice savoury taste to the soup and not over powering. You can always add half the amount and taste to see if you want anymore. It would also be delicious with a cheddar or Parmesan instead if you don't add the Stilton - or even without cheese.....but I think it's best with Stilton :)
