Veggie Cheese Soup

My niece makes this in a slow cooker by putting in all the ingredients but the cheese. When the veggies are tender, she adds the cubed cheese and 5 minutes later, a nutritious meal is served. —Jean Hall, Rapid City, South Dakota

    Super easy to make. Quick. Delicious. I added salt, pepper, lemon & her seasoning and "garlic plus" by clubhouse for spices. I used turkey instead of ham. 10/10 will make again.

    Fantastic! I altered it slightly though. I omitted the celery, used three red potatoes, used 2 T of flour instead of 1 of cornstarch (didn't have it), 5 c of veggies instead of 3, 12 oz of cheese instead of 8, and then since it was so thick I added some chicken broth. Loved it and super easy. All the other ingredients that it called for I kept the same.

    We didn't like this at all. The verges were mushy & it lacked flavor.
