Oh I love soup. I have a couple of recipes I'll shove on here when I get in from work. I always prefer making my own to eating stuff out of a tin, and a lot the carton soups are horrible (Covent Garden I'm looking at you).

Oh chicken's easy. One of the recipes I'm putting on later is for Thai chicken soup - only takes 20 mins to make.

I love soups this is one of my faves

Potato, Leak and Stilton Soup

Ingredients

  • 25g butter
  • 2 medium (about 400g) leeks, washed and thinly sliced
  • 250g floury potatoes, such as maris piper
  • 1.2 litres  vegetable stock,  fresh or from cubes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 100ml single cream
  • 125g rindless Stilton, crumbled

1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the leeks and cook for 5 minutes, stirring now and then, until softened but not browned.

2. Cut the potatoes into thick slices and add to the pan with the vegetable stock and bay leaves. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground white pepper. Cover with a lid, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat slightly. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are very soft. Remove from the heat.

3. Stir the cream and Stilton into the hot soup, then discard the bay leaves. Blend with a stick blender (or in batches in a blender), until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.



Cut this out of a magazine years ago and does make a lovely soup, I put some crumbled stilton and black pepper on top

I'm quite scared of smelly ming mong cheese - I've only had stilton in a broccolli and stilton cup a soup and even then it was probably fake. Does it still taste of old socks when it's in the soup?

Nah I would probably prefer the stilton once I pluck up the courage, I prefer the stronger option in all things.

Yes, it's not overpowering but it's there (it's half the flavour)
