Cheese & Potato Soup



Yes this is an unusual combination & one I'd not normally choose. however it was part of a cooking challenge I do on the taste website. I'm glad I tried it as its very good. thanks Frizz for the great recipe!




Potato and cheese soup

2-3 carrots, peeled, and diced up
2 -3 onions, chopped up
50g of butter
5 Cups of chicken stock
6 sprigs of parsley
2-3 big potatoes, peeled and diced up
2 Cups of grated cheese, tasty cheddar.


Melt the butter on very low heat, add the onions and the carrots, cover and let cook for about 25 minutes.

Add the potato, parsley and chicken stock.
Bring to a boil, cover and lower heat. Cook for about 30 minutes until the potatoes are nice and soft.

Remove from heat, Use a moulinex (hand blender) to mix it all up to obtain the consistency you'd like. (smooth)
Return to heat

Now, VERY SLOWLY add your grated cheese all the while stirring so it can melt in.

Once it's all in and the soup is hot you can serve it up.
