  1. In a large pan, melt half the butter and gently cook the onions for about 20 minutes. When they are very soft, but not coloured, add the cumin for 2 minutes. Turn up the heat, add the remaining butter, celery and seasoning, and cook for 5 minutes.

  2. Add the vegetable stock and double cream, and simmer gently for 15 minutes, uncovered, until the celery is softened. Allow to cool before blending until smooth.

  3. Divide between warmed soup bowls, crumble the Stilton on top, add sprigs of watercress and serve with crusty bread.
