  1. we just had my daughter tested, not only is she allergic to wheat, but highly sensitive to dairy, not as sensitive but still somewhat to soy, peanuts, and lots of other things, but I was looking at your recipe (and wanted to make it right now on this crisp cool fall day!) but it also has broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots in it… all things she has sensitivities to! How are we going to learn to cook for her!?!?!?!?!

    1. As for the milk, you could leave it out and use extra vegetable broth. You could try rice, almond or coconut milk, but those would alter the flavor pretty significantly. And for the cheese, a cashew cream sauce could work if she’s not allergic to cashews. You could also sub in some nutritional yeast and water, which has a “cheesy” taste. As for the vegetables, you could sub in some that your daughter isn’t allergic to…maybe celery, mushrooms and bell peppers of various colors? Cornstarch can be used instead of flour, also. Good luck!

  2. Yum, this looks good! I bet the cheese makes it really tasty. I’m going to be hosting a blog carnival specifically for soups, stocks and chowders, starting this Sunday. I would love it if you would come over and post this recipe. Here’s a link with more info.http://easynaturalfood.com/201…I hope to see you there!

  3. Yummy! I just finished making this and both my kids (ages 8 and 5) gobbled it up. One doesn’t care for cauliflower and the other doesn’t like cooked carrots. No complaints at dinner tonight! I don’t think they noticed all the veggies. Great recipe! I will definitely be making this again.

    1. Yes Brooke it freezes great. There is no cream in this soup, it just looks like it! Although we have frozen cream soups on here in past as well with great success.
