How to make Broccoli and Stilton Soup

If you can't get Stilton cheese give it a try with another blue cheese like Gorgonzola cheese, Fourme d’Ambert or Roquefort. Not even sure if you can get Stilton Cheese in the USA, if not then try one of the above.

Stilton cheese dates back to the 18th century and it smells that way as well, but used in the correct quantities it gives a powerful flavour and tastes delicious.
