Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small broccoli head, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 3 3/4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

Directions
  • Melt the butter in a medium size saucepan, add the vegetables, and fry gently for 5 minutes until soft but not browned.

  • Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in the stock and return to heat. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously until the soup thickens. Allow to simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.

  • Cool soup slightly and press through a sieve. Return soup to pan, add the milk, and heat gently. Stir in the Stilton, salt and pepper, and heavy cream until melted. Blend soup for extra thickness.

  • Do not allow soup to boil at this point, it will curdle.
