Zucchini (Courgette) and Stilton Soup

soup3

Stilton soup is normally associate with broccoli, but I thought I would try something else and had a bunch of zucchini (courgettes) in my fridge, and thought “well, they are green so therefore a substitute for broccoli…hee hee..” and they give the soup a lovely creamy consistency.   They actually went very well with the Stilton and I really enjoyed the soup.  Something for the cold evenings or to just surprise people with “guess what is in this soup”!

I love making soups as they are so easy to make!  Even the Chief Taster can cope with making a soup too!  If he can make this, anyone can!  Easy and delicious! What more could you ask for!  The result is a delicious creamy soup with a joyous tang of Stilton! mmmmm!

1lb zucchini (courgettes)

750ml vegetable stock

1 onion, peeled and sliced

1 clove garlic, peeled and sliced
