“Green Cheese” Soup

My kids call this broccoli and stilton “green cheese” soup, it’s their favourite and they have absolutely no idea where the green colouring comes from! For the last batch I used about 400g broccoli, then made up the rest of the weight in Brussel sprouts and spinach, but vary the mix to what you have in abundance. 

Ingredients:

  • Knob of coconut oil or butter
  • 1 onion or leek, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crsuhed or finely chopped
  • 600g chopped broccoli or other cruciferous veg
  • 1 l stock (veg or chicken)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 160g stilton cheese, roughly chopped
  • Pinch of salt and pepper to season

 Method:

  1. Heat the oil then fry the onion/leek and garlic for 2-3 minutes on a low heat so that they don’t burn (they should just go soft and translucent)
  2. Add the chopped veg, stock, bay leaves, cheese and salt and pepper, bring the boil, cover and simmer for approx. 20-30m minutes until the broccoli is cooked through and tender. Stir occasionally.
  3. Remove the bay leaves, then blitz to a smooth consistency in a food processor (in batches) or with a stick blender (careful, it is hot!), and serve with some crusty bread.
