To serve

  • toast soldiers


  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a low heat and tip in the onion, carrots and potato. Fry gently for about 10 minutes, stirring from time to time, until the onion is soft and the vegetables are glistening.

  2. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and partially cover the pan. Simmer for about 20 minutes, until the vegetables are soft.

  3. Whizz the mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth (a blender will give a smoother texture), then add the cheese and whizz again. Return the soup to the pan, pour in the milk, then reheat gently and taste for seasoning. Serve the soup with buttered toast soldiers.

I didn't add the milk because I thought it was really tasty with just the cheese. Enjoyed it:)

With an added grating of fresh nutmeg this soup is delicious. It tastes healthy and cheesy at the same time. Use strong cheddar for a sharp tangy flavour.

It doesn't matter how many times I have made this soup, I am always guaranteed a nice tasty meal. Easy to make and even easier to eat.

Made this today using Red Leicester for the cheese, and halved the recipe to serve 3 adults - was delicious! Will definitely make again - quick, and just a few ingredients required.

Easy to make and very tasty. A firm favorite in our house already. The kids love it and Hubby takes a pot to work for lunch. I have to make a double batch or it doesn't last 5 minutes!

Very easy to make - I also added garlic, nutmeg and a little Tabasco. Gave it a bit of a kick - very tasty and sustaining.
