The first time I have had this delicious broccoli and stilton cheese soup was a few years ago on a ski holiday in France. ⛷
What is special about this broccoli and stilton cheese soup?
I have to admit that when the menu has been revealed and I have learned about being served broccoli soup I was not only a little sceptical but also a bit long-faced. Sadly, of course, but I was prepared to give it a try and...... I did! Firstly because I could not be bothered showing any fuss for food in front of my small children and secondly because I do like trying new food.
I gave it a try and I am so glad that I did to this very day. I actually did eat it and even asked for more. It is now most definitely my top favourite blended soup along with the creamy mushroom which used to be by far my number one favourite but now I have two yummy soups sharing the first place on my taste buds.
Want this broccoli soup vegan?
Simply replace the stilton cheese with nice vegan cheese.
It is absolutely delicious.
