Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
This deliciously creamy soup can also be made with frozen broccoli instead of fresh.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 leek, trimmed and thinly sliced
- 1 potato, peeled and cubed
- 650ml vegetable stock, made with 1 stock cube
- 1 broccoli, cut into florets
- 100g creme fraiche
- 120g stilton
Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion and cook for another 2 minutes.
Add the potato and stock, and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for 5 minutes, until tender.
Using a processor or hand-held blender, whizz the soup until smooth and creamy; it will still be hot, so be careful.
Stir in the creme fraiche and heat the soup through again. To serve, crumble over the Stilton and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
