Carrot and Stilton Soup (For Your Microwave)

"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!

    Well twissis this is an enchanting soup. When you take a sip, or two, you feel that everything must be alright with the world. The SMooooThness.....is just well...outstanding. Please try this soup, you won't be disappointed. This is an easy soup to put together, and you can use $$ blue cheese or even a lesser blue cheese crumble. The only addition was I threw in some minced onion, (I was chopping for "Saturday Lunch at the Farm" and put them with the onions on the first round. No need for salt, maybe the chives as suggested, but other then that such a wonderful recipe. Thanks so very much twissis, this is a more then keeper.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
