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!
