Broccoli and Stilton soup is perfect for those cold days and I find it perfect for a dinner party. The nice thing about this soup is that it doesn’t take very long at all to make and contains a good amount of vegetables.
I didn’t always like stilton, in fact when I first tried it I absolutely hated it. Now its a different story, whether its because I have had it more or because my taste buds have changed as I got older.
Stilton for me now is a must whenever I have a cheese board, so adding this into soup is perfect.
