Cheese changes any dish which is why I love it so much. Cheese makes food creamy, tasty, stringy & delicious. I tend to add cheese to recipes to turn them into "love recipes" rather than "like recipes."
This Veggie Cheese Soup from the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet is a perfect example. You really won't recognize my soup from the original other than we both use vegetables but I know mine is good and I am sure theirs is equally as good. For their recipe, check here. For mine, keep reading.
1 medium onion, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
1 large potato, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2-3/4 cups water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
2 cups organic vegetable broth
1 cup broccoli pieces
1 cup spinach
1 cup corn kernels
4 ounces Cheddar, cubed (Use any favorite cheese that melts.)
4 ounces Gouda, shredded or sliced thin
In a large saucepan coated with a cooking spray, cook onion and celery over medium heat until onion is tender. Stir in the potatoes, water and bouillon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
On a cold night, sit at the table and slowly enjoy this, especially the warmth you feel as it goes down.
