This soup is something my grandma used to make and it’s a wonderful old recipe I’ve not seen anywhere since. Using three simple ingredients it’s amazingly tasty and is great for using up any Silton or other blue cheese left over from the Christmas period.

METHOD
• Melt the butter with a little olive oil in a large pan, add the onions and let them sweat for 5 minutes until translucent.
• Add the turnips, stir and cover and sauté gently until soft.
• Add the stock and simmer for 20 minutes, then add the watercress and blue cheese and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
• Whiz in a blender or use a hand blender until smooth.
