Here is a simple easy to follow guide to making broccoli and stilton soup, I discovered that I can make 5 portions of this soup for less cost than 5 portions out of a tin!

Ingredients can vary depending on your personal taste so don't be afraid to add a little more or less of something as you wish. I personally think this has a much better taste than any from a supermarket because I can make it to how I like it.. Happy cooking!
