You might be wondering what the white stuff is floating in the soup… that’s a bit of Danish Blue cheese.

The salty blue cheese flavour really stands out against the smooth, fresh taste of the broccoli and cauliflower.

You don’t have to use the cheese, but it’s really tasty and adds some amazing depth of flavour to the soup!

It really couldn’t be any easier!

For the blending, we’d recommend you use a stick blender or throw it in a blender. As far as stick blenders go, you want one that’s going to last and that has a metal stick.

This Andrew James Powerful 3-in-1 Hand Blender is fab! It’s also one of the highest ratings on amazon.
