Made this using two small broccoli instead. Added two teaspoons of crushed garlic. Blended until very smooth. It was delicious.

I recently made this but substituted the cauliflower for broccoli as it is much cheaper at the moment. It was delicious and both of my children demolished it. Very filling πŸ™‚

So easy and delicious! I added a potato and blitzed it all. Velvety, filling, super delicious, perfect dinner on a miserable rainy day❀️

Stumbled across this recipe and immediately loved the idea and so did the misses, I did add SPECK to the recipe along with bacon as it has awesome flavor, also I added onion along with the leak as I love onions oh yeah I did add garlic as love that too. We both loved the dish as I did not blitz it but the misses wants the next one blitzed. Thanks Paulene

Saw this this morning. I had all the ingredients minus the Leek which I substituted with white onion. Sounded different, interesting and nice so decided to give it a go. Since I added double the volume of stock I thickened it up with potato. So yum. Was given the tick of approval from the spousal one. Tasty, filling and one to repeat. I also cooked it on high for about 3.5hrs before blending it.

Without seeing it’s hard to be sure Sam but it sounds like it needs another really good mix to bring it all even consistency πŸ™‚

This is a very yummy & easy prep soup. The only thing I added was a little cream when serving.

Just made this for the first time today. It probably took 4 hours on high, and was delicious .

Made this yesterday, absolutely loved it. I used light milk to keep the calories down a bit. Might add some more garlic and bacon to it next time.

If I could give this soup 10 stars I would !
I really wasn’t prepared for how creamy and mouthwatering it was going to be …..
I’m literally high-fiving myself because I love it so much πŸ™‚

I’m loving this soup and it’s very filling and yummyπŸ˜‹ but can someone tell me how many calories it has please

I wasn’t real sure about this , but gave it a go anyway . I’d ran out of Camembert so used Triple Brie instead . A perfect substitute.
It was really nice . The crispy bacon bits on top really made it .

I made this today, and it was bluddy beautiful…Had enough for dinner and lunch the next day. Will be making it again for sure.

I love this recipe although I mostly use it as a guide. I often replace the leek with brown onion and the camembert with tasty cheese, all depends what I have at hand. Always a great, tasty soup though.

You can blitz it to smooth if you wish Sharon yes πŸ™‚ I’ve left ours partially chunky so only blitzed half of it and we loved it that way too πŸ™‚


May 8, 2021

Hi, wondering if the soup was nice and smooth when you blitzed it.

Thank you. Something very different for this household. Really enjoyed here – even by the male. Will certainly be making it again.


May 1, 2021

Made this soup and it was delicious. Full of flavour and simple to make. Smelled amazing while it was cooking.
Plenty of leftovers to freeze for work lunches.
Will definitely be making this again.

Absolutely delicious, added coconut cream instead milk, but recipe had me a Camembert

Absolutely loved this soup, used minced garlic the only change I made, definitely a keeper. Thankyou Jayne for sharing. πŸ‘Œ

Made this over weekend omg yummy, added bit of extra garlic forgot to put crispy bacon on top . Grand kids ate and enjoyed so did rest of family. Very thick so will thin a little bit with milk next serving


August 20, 2020

A soup full of flavour and very filling. Perfect for a main meal. I did freeze and didn’t loose taste or texture.

I made this for the first time today and it was delicious.
I changes the milk for cream and added 2 tsp of minced garlic, i will definitely be making this again. Nothing beats home made soup πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹


July 19, 2020

Really enjoyed this! Very tasty! I think next time I’ll leave the bacon out and just serve it with crispy bacon bits as I thought blitzing the bacon made the texture a bit strange. Loved it though and will definitely be making it again soon.


July 18, 2020

Cooked it. Loved it. Quick to make and very cheap to make as well. Big winner and will make again 😍😍😍😍

Made this soup last Winter, minus the bacon due to a pork intolerance. Can confirm it was absolutely delicious. Refrigerated well – I think we were eating portions for about a week!

This sounds amazing! What would be the best substitute for milk to make it a low carb soup?

I have made this soup 5 times in the last 3 weeks (twice without the camenbert as I didn’t have any. I added a splash of worcestershire sauce instead those times). I use 1 litre chicken stock and only a splash of milk.
It is safe to say it has quickly become a favourite in our house and amongst several of my friends who have asked for the recipe. I cook it about 3.5 hours on high (6.5 lt slow cooker) before blitzing.

Made this on the weekend and it turned out amazingly.
Only difference is I left skin on the Camembert and all was ok 😁
Great recipe !

This was a huge hit in our house! I used a little diced ham as garnish instead of using bacon in the soup, evaporated milk instead of ordinary milk and added garlic and fresh mixed herbs. A smooth, creamy delightful soup that everyone loved.

Made this yesterday I added 1 tablespoon of minced garlic then kept to the recipe. It took longer to cook than stated in the recipe could be my sc It was really good but I found it very rich next time I will use less Camembert

Made this tonight with some slight variations. Added 3 tbsp of garlic. 1L of chicken stock. And Gorgonzola instead of Camembert. Blitzed with crusty bread was AMAZING!!


May 30, 2018

Does this soup refrigerate well? Just wondering because of the cheese in it


May 20, 2018

Can I freeze this soup

Jan Godfrey

Made this today with Zero Lactosr Anchor Milk. Amazing doesn’t describe how yummy this is. I blitzed it. What a hit. Can’t wait to make it again.


May 19, 2018

This soup is just lovely, thick and creamy, I will definitely be making this again. Just loved it


May 19, 2018

Made this yesterday. Delicious! Very thick so thinned it out with a bit of water. Added garlic but otherwise stuck to recipe. Took longer than the recipe said. Maybe my SC is a bit slow!

Tracey Davies

Overall nice soup. I used skim milk and added 1tsp minced garlic. Cooked 4h low then 2h high. Blitzed & served with crusty bread roll. Dont be deceived by its appearance it is a taste sensation. 😊

Yummo I decided not to blitz and serve a bit chunky on the cards again


May 10, 2018

I made this yesterday for us and it tastes delicious, haven’t blitzed it though. Thankyou so much for sharing the recipe! πŸ™‚

You can see photos of my end result here >> HERE


April 23, 2018

While it really did not look appealing after a good blitz… it was super tasty and really exceeded my expectations. Would love to know whether the chunky look was me and I should have blended longer, or just how it ends up. Overall an amazing recipe


November 27, 2017

Such a delicious soup! Whole family loved it, gets requested almost weekly, and it’s so easy!

Cooked this and loved it!
I added a spoon of minced garlic to mine and I left the skin on the cheese πŸ™‚
I also didn’t blend the end soup as I LOVED it just as it was!


August 29, 2017

5 out of 5. I used 200g of blue cheese instead of camembert. So easy and soooo tasty.
Proud and thankful


August 26, 2017

Absolutely amazing recipe πŸ™‚ even the fussy partner went back for seconds! 10/10 😍😍

Thanks Jayne. I really enjoyed this. I find I needed an extra hours cooking time on high,. Which is probably just my sc. I stuck to the recipe. I I’ll do this again, double the recipe and also add garlic.
