I have been using Allrecipes for a few years but joined today just so I could rate/review this recipe. It is fabulous and got the most fabulous compliments from my boyfriend and others! Thank you!
I didn't change a thing!
I did make a few minor changes that I don't believe altered the taste of the soup itself. One large leek instead of two, a teaspoon of minced garlic (about 2-3 cloves), powdered chicken soup base for the chicken broth, ground celery seed instead of the salt variety, cremini mushrooms instead of portobello mushrooms and left out the croutons. This soup has too much going on, and wasn't very flavourful besides the saltiness and cheese.
I used veggie broth instead of chicken (2 cans and skipped the water), doubled the mushrooms and sauteed them with the leeks, and added defrosted broccoli after the soup had been simmering about 45 min. I pureed about 1/3 of the soup instead of lightly mashing it and it gave it a nice thick texture. Will definitely make again.
This soup is awesome! I like how this recipe includes ingredients that I already have in my fridge. I made a few changes too - I left out the butter and substituted proscuitto for the mushrooms. Yum!
Yum! My changes: veggie broth instead of chicken; 2 stalks of green garlic instead a clove; substituted a cup of steamed pureed broccoli for the mushrooms (but I can't wait to try it with mushrooms later!); no celery salt; extra liquids to make up for my extra veggies. I used extra sharp cheddar.
We didn't have mushrooms on hand but had lots of potatoes and leeks. We chose this recipe because it had "cheddar" in the title. Yum. Other than not having mushrooms, we followed the recipe exactly except to add some red bell pepper. It was very good, especially with crutons.
The only thing I did differently was to omit the celery salt, and I used more cheese. Oh, and I sauteed the mushrooms along with the leeks and potatoes. Next time I'll add a little onion. Good stuff. Thanks!
I liked this and my inlaws loved it so it gets five stars. A keeper!
