Ingredients & Tools
You only need a few simple ingredients to make this Celery and Blue Cheese Soup!
Onions - Use yellow, brown or red onions, whatever you have to hand.
Garlic - I'm a HUGE garlic fan, but if you're not, then feel free to leave it out.
Celery - This is a key ingredient in Celery and Stilton Soup, unsurprisingly. It gives the soup a lovely depth of flavor and a slight tartness that counteracts the rich creamy blue cheese beautifully.
Apple - Adding an apple gives a lovely tart/sweetness that really brings out the flavor of the blue cheese and celery in the soup. Use any variety of eating apple.
Vegetable Stock / Vegetable Broth - Choose your favorite, or homemade. I usually go for low-sodium varieties.
Milk - Some blue cheese soup recipes call for heavy cream, but I use milk which makes for a less calorific soup! Use any milk - 2%, whole milk etc...
Blue Cheese - Use any blue cheese that you like, regular, mild, Stilton, gorgonzola, roquefort etc..
To cook this celery and blue cheese soup recipe, you'll also need:
Large pot - one big enough to hold 4 portions of soup.
Blender - to puree the soup recipe, you'll need either a standard jug blender or a handheld stick immersion blender.

I've just made this soup. Apart from adding a small amount of ground rosemary and thyme, I followed your recipe exactly and it was delicious. Really tasty. I was a little unsure of the apple but the ingredients worked wonderfully together. I'll definitely be making this one again.
The apple is a great twist on a classic recipe. So good!
Sounds delightful! I'm not usually a fan of blue cheese soup (associations with broccoli stilton) but I could see this working well with the fresh celery and tart apple. I might be inclined to put some toasted walnuts on top! (But then again I am a garnish addict.)

My husband opened some stilton last night to snack on and I was wondering what to do with the rest of it apart from a brocolli and stilton soup, and I think it will be this. It looks great!
I'm honestly not that big a fan of soup, but this one does sound delicious
Stunning! (totally coveting your gorgeous bowls, as well as the soup of course!). I've been rustling up lots of Veganuary soups in my ThermoCook too - so quick, easy and fuss-free.
This soup sounds so good and yummy, not to mention healthy! Will try it this weekend 🙂
That looks gorgeous. We get a lot of fenland celery here, as we live very close to the fens. What a delicious way to use some of it!
