Easy to make almost like my mother made.
Pretty bland, might try make again adding garlic and using half and half instead of almond milk
Will not make this again, it doesnt even look appetizing, and it just did not taste good at all. Its not that it was bland, i ended up using 2% milk, not almond milk, and it still was not good, I can’t explain it, it just wasnt worth the time i took to make it.
I enjoyed this recipe however i did add garlic powder and onion powder. I also substituted celery for the carrots and half & half for the almond milk. Came out great.
I think i made it exactly like the recipe said and it was totally yummy. The flavor was great. Had it with some crusty bread with butter. One difference was i don’t have an immersion blender so i put the veggies into my ninja Next tim i will hold back some of the leftover wbrooth water so it is thicker.
I think instead of water, chicken stock would be better to give more flavor. It needs more cheddar cheese also
Very unflavorful. I wont make this again.
I used vegetable stock instead of water. My daughter says it tasted better than Panera. Love it, super easy to make!
Tasted great and very healthy – made just as written. Even the picky eaters enjoyed it.
I wondered if 3 minutes would cut it, but It did! Wonderful. Easy, tasty and healthy.
So good and so easy!
We really enjoyed this healthy soup! I did add a little extra garlic and onion powder for extra taste but it didn’t need it! We already plan on making it again!
This was really good! I did change a few things of course; I added a couple cloves of minced garlic, and used veggie broth in place of plain water. I put the broccoli on top and removed half before blending, chopped it and returned it to the soup. I used low fat milk and an extra 1/4 cup of cheddar. Still much healthier than my old recipe!
Made this exactly as instructed but added 1/4 cut up ham steak after the immersion blending….really good
Great soup, but turned out too watery for me, I’d prefer a thicker consistency. Next time I’ll add 2 cups of stock instead of 3. Also 2 tsp of salt was too much, it turned out too spicy, maybe because I’ve used pink Himalayan salt insted, not sure. Also I’ve added more cheese as others have stated.
Very pasty and the mustard gave it a weird taste. Just didnt work for us.
I followed the guidelines& it tasted great. But I added more cheese & broccoli. I also added the cream & cheese just before my guests arrived. I put the pot on saute low setting just to melt the cheese stirring constantly….it came out beautiful its definitely a keeper ….
Didn’t have the right cheesy consistency and i even used extra cheese!
I’ll be making it again! Was really light on the stomach while also being filling!
Very simple, tasty results. Also very easy to modify in different ways. I added 11% yoghurt for added creaminess; better than butter as it adds protein.
I added a cup of rice and a cup of chicken broth and it’s so good!
