Our neighbour, a French-Canadian lady brought this soup over the other day. She is a great cook and makes all kinds of cool dishes all the time. This soup was absolutely delicious. It's so creamy and cheesy, but without any cream or cheese added. It's also so smooth and packed with flavor. I enjoyed it with some homemade crusty bread, hmmm... Now I am sharing this quick, easy yet tasty recipe with everybody, hopeful you will enjoy it as much as I do :)
