Cheddar is the most popular cheese in Canada.


3 tbsp (45 mL) butter
1 cup (250 mL) finely-chopped onion
4 cups (1 L) chicken broth
10 cups (2.5 L) frozen mixed vegetables
1/3 cup (80 mL) all purpose flour
1 tsp (5 mL) paprika
1 tsp (5 mL) dry mustard
4 cups (1 L) milk
4 cups (1 L) shredded Canadian Cheddar cheese
Pepper, to taste
Additional shredded Canadian Cheddar cheese, to garnish soup bowls


In large pot, melt butter over medium-high heat, cook onion, for about 3 to 5 min or until tender. Add water and chicken broth mix, bring to boil over high heat. Add vegetables, bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender crisp.

Whisk flour into milk and gradually stir into pot, with paprika and mustard. Cook stirring often, for about 5 min or until slightly thickened.

Remove from heat. Add Canadian Cheddar cheese and stir until melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle additional shredded Canadian Cheddar cheese over each serving.


Cooking Club Tip:
To take home, divide soup among containers. Label with name and date prepared. Package extra shredded cheese for garnish. Reheat soup on stove top, on medium heat or in the microwave oven, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
