Michelle's Freefrom Broccoli and Celeriac Soup with Blue Cheese

Corn, egg, gluten, milk, nightshade, nut, peanut, sesame & wheat free; can be lactose & soya free

This is the classic broccoli and Stilton soup – with a freefrom twist! If you are only worried about wheat/gluten, then you can go ahead and use Stilton; if you are cow’s milk intolerant then you can use the Roquefort; if you are lactose intolerant, then you can either use a soya cheese or just go with the toasted seeds. However, if you use the Munchy Seeds, be aware that they do include soya!

Serves 6

IngredientsBroccoli soup

  • 500g / 14 oz  broccoli including stems

  5. To serves, reheat then sprinkle each bowl with some crumbled cheese and some seeds.
