Don't throw away that leftover veggie tray. Try this delicious Cheese Soup recipe that came from my sister-in-law Michele Thornburg in Moberly, MO. I added some minced garlic, salt & pepper. Instead of using the frozen California Medley, I chopped up the broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower left from Thanksgiving. Serve with French or Sourdough Bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook above ingredients 20 minutes (until potatoes are al dente).
  2. Add 1 package of California Mix (or 1 cup each of chopped broccoli, chopped carrots, and chopped cauliflower). Simmer for another 20 minutes.
  3. Turn heat down as low as possible. Then add 2 cans Cream of Chicken soup, and 1 pound of Velveeta Cheese. Allow cheese to melt, stirring occasionally -- about 20 minutes longer. Continue to use low heat after adding soup and cheese. This can stick easily.

I love this soup! Thank you for sharing it with us. I have a 2 1/2 year old that is on the "cheese only" diet! :) This is a quick and easy way for me to get her to eat her veggies. The only thing I did different was i add in some carrots. Thanks-Stephanie
