Notes

  • You could add some cauliflower too to use a mixture of vegetables.
  • Prefer a stronger flavour? Use stilton instead of mature cheddar.
  • If you are making this for young kids, mix some little bits of pasta in to it, to make more of a pasta soup stew.
  • You could make this vegan by using almond/soya milk and vegan cheese.
  • Try using shallots instead of onions for a sweeter flavour.
  • Top with some toasted seeds to add some crunch.
