Creamy Cheesy Broccoli & Mushroom Soup

What I was going to make, was a lovely blue cheese and broccoli soup but in spite of meticulously writing down all my ingredients to buy for some reason, I didn’t end up with any blue cheese.

Hmpfh, fortunately, I bought a large chunk of mature cheddar, and mum gave me some mushrooms which I needed to use up- hmmm.  So two days and four different types of broccoli soup later I have a lovely creamy broccoli cheese and mushroom soup. Luckily I love broccoli.

Recipe Notes

Tips: Don't leave your blitzing to the end it makes it harder to create a smooth soup.

If you want you can also have it as a chunky soup without blitzing. You can also adapt the thickness to suit your preferences. I like it thick and creamy but simply add more milk or water for a less thick texture. Though I'd make it as it is first as this is a medium thickness.
