The weather has been so weird here in Utah since we got back from Disneyworld. Not too cold, and today it has been raining. Utah weather is so strange which means we should brace ourselves for a big snow storm. That is usually how it works.

But I can’t seem to get enough soup this time of year. It is perfect for a chilly day and so comforting. Since the New Year is here, it is time for some more veggies since they didn’t make much of an appearance for the Holidays! This soup has so many yummy veggies, and you won’t be able to get enough of this creamy, cheesy soup!

    This soup is dangerously delicious, as in, I feel like I want to keep going back for more!
    I made the following modification to suit my preferences:

    4 c veg broth
    2 c whole milk
    Whole bunch of kale chopped spoon sized, added with potatoes(omitted broccoli/cauliflower)
    Sprinkle of nutmeg, shake of mustard powder.

    OMG! Thanks for the great recipe! I had an idea of what I wanted to make and this recipe helped me achieve it! Another time I’ll try with the broccoli and cauli as I’m sure that will also be delicious!

  2. This soup looks awesome. Do you know the nutritional info, I didn’t see it or a link to get it. Thanks, Jim
