Well, did you do it?  Did Jim like it?  Did you like it?  Did you have something else? 

I'll try that again!

Well it was rank.  What a waste of a cauli, cheese, gas and more importantly MY TIME.  Will pay attention next time Jim turns up his nose, going to stick to my mad mental soup next time  (aka lentil)aargh

Fiona, would you mind posting the recipe anyway? I'm curious as to what it intailed, and who knows? Maybe we can save it? I think I'd choose a different cheese first....big_laugh

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

 I deleted the blue cheese from my bookmarks cos it was so bad, but this is another which is basically the same recipe, I split the soup into 2 - 1 with cheddar and 1 with blue cheese - they were equally both disgusting.  Going to some poor animal tomorrow.flaming_nora

Just a quick glance at that recipe - I like to include onions, and I would have very gently fried the onions and leeks till softened and become sweet, before adding the potato and stock (not cheese at this point). The cheese of choice added at the table to the 'vegetable' soup.

Not sure if that would have made any difference at all, Fiona - but that's how I would cook it!! big_hug
