  1. Melt the butter and sauté the chopped onion in a large casserole or saucepan over a gentle heat.  Add the chopped broccoli and the seasoning and nutmeg.  Simmer for about 5 minutes with the lid on.  Add the vegetable stock and simmer for a further 10 minutes.  Add the stilton cheese and allow it to melt.  This will give the soup its distinctive flavour.  Pour into a blender and blend until smooth.  Return to the pan, gently re-heat, and then stir in the cream.
