    Hi, it's really easy. I have a very large deep wok, I chuck in approx 1kg bag of frozen broccoli, add 3-4pints of chicken stock, bring to the boil. Then add stilton, as much or as little as you like, maybe some cream if you want, then blend. Does me about 10 portions. I bought some Addis containers so i can portion it and freeze some and I take them to work in those to microwave for lunch.
