Pear and Blue Cheese Soup is Rich and Sweet (Just Like Your Ideal Boyfriend)*


Fun fact: I love gritty pears and pungent cheese. So I was practically salivating when I found a recipe for Pear and Gorgonzola Soup in the new cookbook Soup Night: Recipes for Creating Community Around a Pot of Soup by Maggie Stuckey. I'm happy to report that this recipe is easy to make and just as delicious as it sounds. Even Keith, who usually eats like a bird, had a second helping. And aside from the pears and cheese, you probably have all the ingredients at home:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 pears, cored and chopped
3 cups vegetable or chicken broth 
6 oz. blue cheese such as Gorgonzola or Roquefort
1/2 tsp paprika
1-1/2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper
chopped nuts, for garnish

The copyright police might turn me into stone or steal my firstborn child if I post the entire recipe, so pick up a copy of Soup Night: Recipes for Creating Community Around a Pot of Soup (hint: Your library might have it!), and put some delicious fall pears to good use.

*  You know I'm kidding about the "rich" part. I'd rather have smart and sweet!
