    twissis's Note:

    From the *Best Ever Chicken* Cookbook edited by Linda Fraser ---- There are many broccoli cheese soup recipes on RZ, but I could not find a single one using Stilton cheese & we love it. Per the intro, "A very easy, but rich soup -- Choose something simple to follow it, such as plainly roasted or grilled meat, poultry or fish." *Enjoy* !

      This soup is criminally good -- and I reckon someone stole two bowls of it. The recipe may say it serves four, but it only served hubby and me for lunch today! Anyone know where the missing soup is? Made as written.

      omg, was this ever wonderful! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could! The Stilton gives the soup a richness that is fantastic. And the veggies just add to the whole body. Will definitely have this again. Thnx for posting another winner, twissis. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.
