Ingredients

  • 1

    medium onion, finely chopped

  • 2

    celery ribs, strings removed with a vegetable peeler and ribs finely chopped

  • 1/2

    lb cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets (2 1/4 cups)

  • 3

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2

    cups chicken broth

  • 1

    cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk

  • 1

    teaspoon cornstarch

  • 1/3

    cup crumbled Stilton cheese (2 oz)

  • 1/2

    cup light cream or half-and-half

  • 1/4

    teaspoon white pepper

Directions

Cook onion, celery, and cauliflower in butter in a 3 1/2- to 4-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until onion and celery are softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Add broth and 1 cup milk and simmer, covered, until cauliflower is very tender, about 25 minutes. Purée cauliflower mixture in 2 batches in a blender until very smooth (use caution when blending hot liquids), then return to cleaned saucepan and bring to a simmer. Whisk together cornstarch and remaining 2 tablespoons milk in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved, then add to soup and simmer, whisking, until soup is slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add Stilton, cream, pepper, and salt and cook over low heat, whisking, until Stilton is melted and soup is smooth, about 1 minute.
