Hearty Cheese and Vegetable Soup

Thick and creamy, this soup is chock-full of rich, cheese flavor. I came home with this recipe after an exchange at my church several years ago and I have shared it with many. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. —Suzanna Snader, Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania

    This soup was just what we needed on a very cold day in Florida!! I did not use water or Bouillon Cubes, instead I used 8 oz of low sodium vegy stock. Soooo good! Next time I will make with Velveeta as the Cheddar cheese was what I had but I am sure the Velveeta would be even better!

    This was excellent! ---but has anyone made this with a white cheese instead of the velveeta? If so, what kind? TIA

    Very good and if you like you can add cubed leftover ham to this soup.

    I thought this recipe was very flavorful and easy to make. An alteration to this recipe that I suggest is to equally substitute thyme for the parsley.

    This sounded like it would be good but it was outstanding. I even made it with FF milk. So much flavor. I probably added more veggies than called for but that only enhanced the flavor.
