- 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
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.
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.
