This is the easiest soup in the world to make. Really. Made from Bibi’s own recipe, it uses only three ingredients – yes, three! – and is at least 1000x better than any you can buy in the shops.
Stilton cheese has its own website with loads of fascinating facts (really!) and this information on its nutritional value. Basically, it’s high in protein and calcium, high in fat too but this is not a bad thing – runners use a lot of energy; don’t be afraid of getting sufficient fat in your diet.
Broccoli and Stilton Soup
500g broccoli (or two heads, which is easier to measure)
1 litre vegetable stock
Salt & pepper to taste*
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
1 Wash the broccoli and cut into florets. Cut the stem into small pieces – about 1cm square – and use that too. Cook gently in the vegetable stock for about 15 minutes or until tender.
2 Remove from the heat and crumble in the Stilton. Buzz with an electric hand blender for about a minute (leave a few small chunks so you don’t end up with something the consistency of baby food).
3 Season with salt and pepper and enjoy.
Crumble on some more Stilton and serve with crusty bread or warm pittas.
