Broccoli Stilton and Walnut Soup.

Broccoli , Stilton and Walnut Soup

Creamy cruciferous vegetables , with a nutty bite , you might not want to leave this soup too long or it will go a kind of yellowy colour this dish takes less than 15 minutes to make . You could substitute cream for milk and up the stilton for a richer dish , but its still a bit post Christmas

Cauliflower and Toasted Walnut Soup

The Broccoli soup recipe works well substituting cauliflower which has a creamy texture all of its own so you won’t need the stilton , I used walnuts but toasted pine nuts would also work well .

Cauliflower and Toasted Walnut Soup
Last year I found that tahini worked really well in a cauliflower soup or for a more smokey taste a little smoked paprika , prepare cook the cauliflower as for the above soup adding a teaspoon of tahini or paprika in place of the walnuts & stilton .
