    1. In a large frying pan over medium high heat, combine the olive oil, garlic to taste, onions and mushrooms. Saute for about 5 minutes or until the onions are tender. Remove from heat and reserve for later.
    2. In a large pot over high heat, combine the potatoes and carrots and add water to cover. Bring to the boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender. Drain the water and add the milk. Continue to cook over low heat until milk starts to simmer.
    3. Stir in the cheese sauce, then stir in the flour slowly, until mixed. Add 3/4 of the cheese, the reserved mushroom mixture, peas, sweetcorn and broccoli and heat through. Garnish with remaining cheese.

    Wonderful in every way!! Very cheesy, and the combination of vegetables is perfect. I'd recommend mixing the flour with some of the milk prior to adding to the rest of the milk,, and then add the cheese soup. No lumps that way. Made 3-3/4 quarts--7 big servings.  -  24 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a yummy recipe. Instead of condensed cream of cheddar soup (which was expensive) I made my own roux using butter, flour, milk and cheddar cheese. I left out the additional flour called for in the recipe.  -  07 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent! My favorite recipe on here so far. The onions and mushrooms make a surprisingly flavorful base. I substituted one bag of mixed frozen vegetables for the fresh veggies, and halved the milk and cheese soup concentrate for an even heartier soup.  -  23 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
