Root Soup W/Blue Cheese

Recipe by Deantini

A filling and healthy pureed soup. It can be a vegetarian option if you substitute chicken stock with vegetable stock. This recipe calls for the Irish Blue Cheese called Cashel Blue. If you can't find it a gorgonzola or other firm blue cheese will be acceptable substitutes. From Canadian Living.

This is just delicious! I made it as posted, except I substituted red potatoes because that is what I had on hand. Used my immersion blender, and this was wonderfully quick and easy! The nutmeg amount was perfect, and just loved the blue cheese....eliminated the need for salt! Thanks for sharing! Made for Rookie tag game.
