Warm and comforting crucifer and Stilton soup

On a cold and rainy June day like today you need something to insulate you from the inside out. This should fit the bill.

Let’s assume you’re cooking for 2. You can multiply as you need to.

Take a head of broccoli and half a cauliflower. Break them into smallish florets and place in the steamer with half a chopped onion (or 3 inches of chopped leek). Steam these for 8 minutes over half a pint of boiling water. When tender tip the veg into the steamer base and add 1/2 pint of milk (or soya milk) and heat to almost boiling. Remove from heat. Blend with a hand mixer and crumble some tangy Stilton cheese (about 100g) into the soup. Stir and serve with some fresh wholemeal bread (or toast if you haven’t been to the shops). If you haven’t got Stilton, Cheddar or even Feta will do. A sprig of watercress on top would be good.
