A couple of years ago I mentioned that I wanted to start doing some savoury foods on my blog. It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a while now hey I’ve never actually got round to doing it.
If you know me personally, you’ll know I’ve always been the fussiest eater! I’ve never been the healthiest kid when it came to foods, as I grew older, I got better but still refused to try certain foods. Now that I’m unable to eat solid foods, I totally regret that! I crave foods I’ve never liked before (which is weird, I know). One thing which has always turned me off certain foods is the texture, and one texture I’ve NEVER liked is soup. Don’t ask why, I just have never been able to enjoy a good soup… until now.
My Nan & auntie are known for their soups. Every gathering (especially in the autumn/winter time), my Nan or auntie will make one of their famous soups and it’s gone within seconds. One gathering, I decided to try one. Let’s just say, my taste buds were delighted! I know, me who hates soup textures was officially turned.
So for Christmas, my mum brought me a soup maker ( ) so I could make my own! Soup is one of the only things my stomach can actually tolerate and doesn’t make me sick so knowing I could make my own was amazing.
Today’s soup is inspired by my Nan, it’s her famous Broccoli & Stilton Soup which is SUPER tasty! let’s just say, it’s that good that me and mum have had it every Sunday since getting the soup maker.
So if you fancy giving this soup a try yourself, then keep on reading:

- Finally, pour into a bowl and use the remainder of the cheese to sprinkle ontop.
That’s your soup prepared, made and ready for you to eat! YUM.
Like I mentioned above, I really want to start sharing more savoury food with you all. I’m known for my baking, which obviously I’ll keep sharing but I want to just take a little path down the savoury options also.
I really hope you liked today’s post and it inspired you to try different things, especially if your fussy like me. I’m constantly regretting not trying more foods before my stomach became paralysed as I truly believe my taste buds have changed for the better.
I’m super excited to start sharing more of my soup recipes with you! I’ve got plenty more up my sleeve.
Sending you all tons of love and hugs as always,
