BROCCOLI AND STILTON SOUP I use frozen broccoli; actually, frozen organic broccoli, if that makes you feel better. In fact, this is better when made with frozen, and certainly more convenient for an impromptu standby.
Macaroni Cheese from the Hawksmoor at Home cookbook. The ultimate comfort food, perfect with a crisp green salad, but also surprisingly good as a side with steak.In the American South it’s sometimes made with condensed milk. The result is too sweet for us, but makes for an interestingly trashy version. We aim for a fondue consistency and like it with as much cheese as possible – more than you might think feasible.
This vegetarian soup is packed with flavor! Only 5 ingredients, easy to make in the slow cooker. This is based on the classic British broccoli and stilton soup, but with a little extra potato to make it economical. You can use any blue cheese.
Pale, smooth, delicately sweet but deeply flavoured, this soup is a perfect winter’s lunch. It was dreamt up by our collaborator Nikki Duffy and she recommends using a creamy, softish blue cheese such as Cornish Blue. Dolcelatte works well too, but avoid Stilton, which usually introduces an unwanted bitter note.
