This soup is excellent! I had some Gouda I needed to use and this popped up. I used a package of "steam in the bag" broccoli florets, cooked according to package directions, and added it at the end. I finished the soup and then it was about an hour or so before we ate. Unfortunately, it had curdled somewhat by the time we ate which made for a funky texture. Next time I will know to serve immediately. I did use fresh grated nutmeg!


It was alright. I really like gouda so I thought I was going to be crazy about this recipe, but it tasted just kind of like... melted gouda. I followed the recipe to a T but it just wasn't for us. It was alright (as I said, I love gouda!) but it was just really melted gouda.


Yum! Added a little more cheese (used the smoked gouda!) and more broccoli. Also added cooked chicken sausage, as the soup was the main course. Will definitely make again, and try with the nutmeg next time!
