Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp light olive oil
  • 1 onion roughly chopped
  • 1 leek roughly chopped
  • 1 head of celeriac peeled and roughly chopped
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 pears peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • 600 ml hot vegetable stock

Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over a medium heat then add in the chopped onion, leek, celeriac and seasoning. Cook over a medium/low heat for 5 minutes but do not let the vegetables brown. If they begin to colour, turn down the heat
  2. Add the vegetable stock, bring to the boil then turn down to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes
  3. Place the soup in a blender (I used a Froothie) and blend until smooth
  4. Stir through the crumbled Stilton and the cream. Check the seasoning.
  5. Serve in soup bowls garnished with creme friache and chopped parsley.
