  • 4 cups water
  • 1 large carrot diced
  • 2 medium potatoes onion
  • 1 medium onion minced
  • 10 oz fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 6 oz spreadable cheese* see the notes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp parsley optional

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a large pan and over medium heat. Add onion and carrot, season with the salt and pepper and cook stirring occasionally for 5-7 minutes or until onion is translucent. 
  • Add mushrooms and continue cooking until all liquid evaporates and mushrooms are slightly brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile add water and potatoes to a large pot and cook on a medium-low heat until potatoes are tender. Add cooked mushrooms and spreadable cheese and stir until cheese melts breaking big chunks with a wooden spoon.
  • Adjust salt and pepper, sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Notes

Spreadable Cheese
In order for cheese to melt faster, prior to adding it to a soup, I love mixing the cheese separately in a large bowl with half a ladle of hot soup. That way, cheese will be completely dissolved and all you'll have to do is pour it into a soup.
