Update- this has now become my favourite soup. I make a pot on Sunday and freeze some (yes it freezes fine) and use it through the week. Thank you! mmmm I thought this was lovely, YUM YUM YUM. Thanks for this great recipe. I just added some mushrooms and some chilli flakes as well. Really really good! Will be making this loads :-)

Very tasty, even the carnivore hubby loved it, and no processed cheese.

This is delicious. Added a can of northern beans for some protein, skipped the cheddar to cut down on calories, skipped the parsley as I didn't have any, subbed 1/4 c cottage cheese for the cream cheese and used water instead of stock to cut down on salt. Very tasty and flavorful soup! Thanks!

I thought this was really good. DH thought it was ok. We made last night and let the chowder meld for lunch today. My vegetable broth was unsalted and therefore, I thought the chowder needed quite a bit of added salt for flavor. Thanks for posting. This was enjoyed.

totally yummy and best veggie chowder ever! serving size is really 4 main dish bowls or 8 side dish bowls. 2 c onions = 1 medium-large onion; 1 c carrot = 2 carrots; 1.5 c potatoes = 2 medium potatoes; 1 c zucchini = 1 small zucchini. If use maggie brand veggie stock dilute it as it's too strong/salty by itself. Less salt is ok if using veggie stock instead of water. Canned green beans is fine but add them when adding the peas. Can add any other veggies, but rsuggest add 1/2 c. chopped mushrooms when add peas. Use sharp cheddar cheese, shredded is fine instead of grated. Serve with crusty french bread, garlic bread, cornbread, or sandwhiches (like egg salad).

This was really delicious! Made as written except that I didn't have fresh parsley so just left it out. I was happy to see that it freezes well because I want to take it to my son who is vegetarian! Thank you for posting.

This was an ok soup. Nothing special. A great way to add veggies to a diet though.

I highly recommend making this with fresh vegetables. The first time I made it, I tried to cheat and use frozen, but it just watered down the soup and made it very bland. Fresh vegetables are always best, but especially in this soup!
