This turned out grand! I love stilton cheese and tomatoes, this soup has gone into my cookbooks. I used a burgundy wine since that is what I had on hand. Thanks for a wonderful recipe

I'm really glad I tried's my new favorite tomato soup recipe. I wish I could give it more stars! I used white wine instead of red, used a total of 1/2 cup blue cheese, and added 1/2 tsp thyme (the amount isn't specified in the ingredient list). This was really outstanding.
