I'm just starting out when it comes to making soup. I saw this recipe and I had to try it. Best decision I've ever made. My family loves it and it still tastes great from the microwave. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who enjoys a hearty chowdered soup like me. Can't wait to make it again and again! Read More

I cooked this for a few of my vegetarian relatives and they loved it! A wonderful blend of vegetables and cheese! Needs to be more creamy and thick though. Read More

I made a kettle of this for the first time for my husband's family - with fresh baked loaves of caraway rye and wholegrain bread - What a simple recipe and soooooo delicious!! Making it ahead of time and just warming it to serve allowed me to enjoy my family! I did minor changes - I used small bags of frozen peas and beans and broccoli instead of the canned peas and fresh beans. This is a keeper!! Read More

My husband and I loved this soup. I made a few tasty additions in vegetable preference including chunks of zucchini green onions and lima beans. I also added an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and some basil oregano and parsley. I used more water than suggested and slightly less flour. Precooked orzo pasta mixed in gave it more substance. We will def. make this again!:) Read More

I made this soup with my Kindergarden class and they loved it! It was very easy and very yummy. I got childern to eat veggies that normally wouldn't. I used graded chedder cheese instead of processed and it work just fine. I also used frozen peas for a bit more texture canned are to mushy. I will be adding this soup to my regular cooking for my family. Read More

This is awesome. My husband who hates soup loved this. A huge hit even with my picky 2yo daughter. She asked for seconds. My husband does not like "thin" foods so I added a can of cheddar cheese soup undiluted and it made it perfect. I also added a can of chopped clams drained of course. Wonderful soup. Read More

This was pretty good. Something about it made it taste kind of sweet though- maybe it is the combo of velveeta and peas? Read More

I pretty much followed the recipe with adding more favoite veggies (mushrooms red bell pepper cauliflower)and substituting the processed cheese with 3 cups of mild chedder. I also sauted the onion red pepper garlic and mushrooms first before adding the water. The soup was awesome! Read More
