Broccoli and Stilton soup

It’s a classic combination and so easy to make! Now- just because you’re doing baby led weaning it doesn’t mean you can’t have soup (oh but the mess?!)

Baby’s soup is soaked up into a slice of bread and given to her in fingers of sloppy soupy bread that she can pick up and suck or munch on without a horrific amount of mess. Simple!


One medium broccoli

One onion

One medium to large potato

One stick of celery

Large nob of butter

1 1/2 pints Vegetable stock (if gluten free make sure you find gluten free stock cubes)

150g Stilton

Chop the onions and celery

Melt the butter and cook the onions and celery on a low to medium heat for 5-10mins

Meanwhile peel and chop the potato and cut the stalks off the broccoli and chop them up.

Add the potato and broccoli stalks to the pan and mix

Add a pint and a half of stock, bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 10mins

Add the broccoli heads, bring back up to the boil and reduce back to a simmer for another 5mins

Meanwhile chop the Stilton

Add to the pan and stir until it’s mostly melted

Blend into a smooth soup and add a little salt and pepper to taste

Toddler ate hers with a side of spinach and cheese on crackers (her combination suggestion not mine- but I’m not going to argue if she’s requesting spinach!)

Baby had hers soaked into bread fingers- yummy!
