Looking for an update on broccoli and Stilton soup? This warming veggie dish uses cauliflower florets for a satisfying, creamy texture and subtle flavour.

Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Shallots

2 medium, roughly chopped

Oregano, Dried

1 teaspoons, level

Cauliflower, Raw

1 whole, trimmed and cut into small florets

Vegetable stock cube(s)

1 cube(s), to make 900ml

Stilton

80 g, crumbled

Parsley, fresh

2 tablespoons, roughly chopped

Calorie Controlled Brown Bread

4 slice(s)

Instructions

  1. Mist a large pan with cooking spray and fry the shallots over a medium-high heat for 5 minutes until starting to soften. Add the oregano and cook for a further minute.
  2. Add the cauliflower and stock, then cover and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.
  3. Transfer half of the cauliflower to a bowl using a slotted spoon, and set aside. Add half the Stilton to the soup, then use a stick blender to blitz until smooth. Season to taste.
  4. Put the reserved cauliflower back into the soup with most of the parsley. Divide between bowls and scatter over the remaining Stilton and parsley. Season with freshly ground black pepper, then toast the bread and serve alongside the soup.

Notes

Shallots can be tricky to peel. If you have time, soak them in hot water for 1-2 minutes first – it softens the skin, making it easier to take off.
