Hope you enjoy this cheesey, not so bad for you without the whipping cream soup. You could substitute the cream for a lower percentage milk or leave it out all together like I did. An immersion blender would also be a good possible addition to make it a smoother texture. I like the chunkier vegetables. Overall the soup was delicious, and what matters most, my kids actually ate it.

Happy cooking friends,
