If you’re looking for a Winter soup that will warm you up then look no further – this Cheesy Vegetable Soup is it!
*First of all – Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas to everyone! I want to wish you and your family a happy and relaxing Christmas. I’m virtually sending you a gift wrapped hug and hot chocolate! *
This soup has it all – tons of vegetables, tons of flavor and lots of creamy cheesiness! When I made this and saw people were going back for seconds (and thirds!) then I knew this soup was a hit. While spooning a cheesy taste into their mouth and muttering “This soup is really good!” then I knew I had to post this recipe!
Vegetable soups are usually thought of more broth based, but I love cheesy vegetables. I was able to use our frozen garden green beans and carrots in this recipe. It’s the best feeling when you can use your Summer veggies on cold Winter days! For this recipe I’m using frozen green beans, frozen corn and fresh carrots and potatoes, but you can throw whatever frozen vegetables you want into this. Frozen broccoli, cauliflower, California blend, carrots or peas would all taste great! If possible, don’t skip the potatoes! It gives the soup a heartiness that will fill you up.
So when you are looking for a cheesy soup, give this Cheesy Vegetable Soup a try in the kitchen! Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
