In a medium saucepan, add the oil and sauté the onions on medium heat for a few minutes till softened.
Add the garlic and thyme and sauté for a minute before adding the broccoli.
Pour in the water, add the cheese and bring to a boil.
Cover and simmer on a low flame for 5 minutes.
Blend using a hand blender, and add pepper to taste. Serve with warm bread.
Stilton is the perfect cheese for this soup with its rich and mellow flavour and creamy smooth texture. However, if you do not have it to hand, you could use another blue cheese such as gorgonzola or roquefort, but use half the amount of cheese (1 cup), as these cheeses are stronger than stilton.
There is no need to add salt to the recipe as the salt in the cheese is sufficient for this soup.
