The best winter soup recipe, ever?

Broccoli, Pumpkin (or Squash) and Stilton Soup

Take a break from getting all worked up about the internet (based on my posts saying you should get all worked up about the internet) and enjoy my wondrous culinary discovery!

1 kg of pumpkin (or butternut squash), peeled and de-seeded (peeled weight)
1 crown of broccoli
100g of Stilton cheese
2 teaspoons of grated ginger
4 vegetable Oxo stock cubes, made up to 750ml of stock
2 pinches of cinnamon
Ground black pepper to taste

Boil the squash in the stock and leave to simmer for a good 10 minutes in a large pan.  Add the broccoli and cook for 10 more minutes until the squash and broccoli is tender, adding pepper to taste.

Use a hand blender to blend the squash and broccoli.  Put back onto the hob and crumble the Stilton into the soup.  Add 2 pinches of cinnamon and stir until the cheese melts into the soup.

  1. Sounds great! But I'm not sure that it's the best ever winter soup - my cream of roast winter parsnip soup surely takes that accolade! ;-)
