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 🙂

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 🙂

This is a very yummy & easy prep soup. The only thing I added was a little cream when serving.
August 1, 2021
Just made this for the first time today. It probably took 4 hours on high, and was delicious .
July 27, 2021
Very yummy light soup. Made as per recipe. Will be adding this one to the favs 😊
July 24, 2021
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.
July 22, 2021
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 🙂
I’m loving this soup and it’s very filling and yummy😋 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 .
July 20, 2021
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.
July 19, 2021
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 🙂 I’ve left ours partially chunky so only blitzed half of it and we loved it that way too 🙂
May 8, 2021
Hi, wondering if the soup was nice and smooth when you blitzed it.
May 2, 2021
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.
April 28, 2021
Absolutely delicious, added coconut cream instead milk, but recipe had me a Camembert
April 27, 2021
Absolutely loved this soup, used minced garlic the only change I made, definitely a keeper. Thankyou Jayne for sharing. 👌
April 26, 2021
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.
August 3, 2020
Loved this recipe, was so much better than I expected. I will definitely make this again
July 28, 2020
By far one of the best soups I have ever had! Will be adding this to my often made recipes
July 19, 2020
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 😋😋
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!
What a delicious low carbohydrate, low calorie soup!!
August 4, 2019
Sounds delish definitely going to make this when master 5”s godfather and partner come for dinner
July 9, 2019
Does it freeze well?
June 8, 2019
I used 300g
June 6, 2019
What size camembert cheese did everyone use please?
July 26, 2018
Cooking Cream 🙂
July 24, 2018
This sounds amazing! What would be the best substitute for milk to make it a low carb soup?
July 3, 2018
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.
July 2, 2018
cooked this today really enjoyed added a little more to recipe
June 14, 2018
Divine. I didnt have any leek so I left that ingredient out. This tasted better than any soup Ive eaten at any restaurant!! Im hiding it so I dont have to share👍🏼
June 10, 2018
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 !
June 4, 2018
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.
June 3, 2018
Absolutely loved it. Took longer to cook than recipe but fortunately previous comments were taken into consideration.
This was absolutely delicious… I too k it to a friends for lunch and everybody loved it… I added garlic but otherwise followed recipe exactly.. it’s a new favourite
June 2, 2018
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
May 30, 2018
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!!
Does this soup refrigerate well? Just wondering because of the cheese in it
May 20, 2018
Can I freeze this soup
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
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!
May 18, 2018
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. 😊
May 12, 2018
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! 🙂
April 25, 2018
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!
August 30, 2017
Cooked this and loved it!
I added a spoon of minced garlic to mine and I left the skin on the cheese 🙂
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 🙂 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.
