Carrot and Stilton Soup (For Your Microwave)

Total Time

I have been tripping my way thru the Australian Womens Weekly cookbook series & selectively entering a few recipes I saw as truly spec. This one is from the *Microwave 2* cookbook that I almost opted to ignore & that would have been a big mistake since this gem was found early on. I have not made this soup yet, but it does not get easier than this for the blue cheese lovers amongst us. *Enjoy* !

I am just now eating this soup and cannot say enough good things about it....creamy, rich, and absolutely delicious. It's hard to believe how easy it was to make. I made it even easier by using already shredded carrots (about 2 1/2 cups). The only other changes I made were to use veggie stock base and add just a slight sprinkle of sweet curry powder. Thank you, twissis, for such a delicious and easily made soup...mmm!
