This is the perfect soup for when the nights start drawing in. Packed with mushrooms, stilton and thyme this will warm you up from the inside. 

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onion, garlic and mushrooms for a few minutes, until the liquid has evaporated and everything starts to become golden.
  2. Stir in the stock and add most of the thyme leaves. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes, then add half the pouch of rice and cook for another 5 minutes. Blend with a stick blender. Season well and stir in the remaining rice and the cream.
  3. While the soup cooks, cut 4 thick slices from the baton. Heat the grill to high and toast the bread on each side. Divide the Stilton and walnuts between the slices, and grill for another few minutes, until the cheese is just starting to melt. Scatter over the remaining thyme. Serve the croutes on top of the soup, or on the side.
