Can I substitute the Cheese?

Yes, you can substitute Velveeta Cheese for a Sharp or Mild Cheddar or a combination of both. If substituting cheese, add 8-12 oz of cheese.

Velveeta cheese can be very “cheesy” so the amount you add is totally up to you. Start with 16 oz of cheese, continue adding cheese to taste. We add about 20 oz.)

Can I leave out the pasta?

Yes, the pasta is optional and will not affect the outcome of the soup. Either omit the pasta completely or add less pasta.

    Hi Valentina! We recently visited a ukranian restaurant in Michigan where we were served a delicious sorrell soup. We went home determined to find a recipe to make our own and that how we found your site. We adore soup and are thrilled with all of your wonderful recipes. Things like your simple Russian soup similar to my chicken noodle but a huge cut above. Yesterday I made your meatball soup and today will try this broccoli soup or creamy chicken and potato. We found the begets online and though I haven’t yet preseasoned meat I intend to. I was also so happy to learn of your faith! We too are believers about to retire with two children probably around your age who are married and have blessed us with two 5 month old granddaughters born y says apart. They two are committed Christians and will benefit from my soup making frenzied as its such a great food to share or to bless those who are sick …. I just had to write and thank you though I notice these other comments are really old so I’m not sure you’ll ever read this. Do you have more recipes? A cookbook maybe? Anyway thanks again you have been a blessing to us! Now if we could just figure out where to buy sorrel!?

      Mrs. Monroe,
      I wish you could see the smile that lit my face when reading your comment. I was so blessed by it, THANK YOU so much.
      Yes, soups are big in our household. Especially during the cold winters. ๐Ÿ™‚ We have all kinds of different recipes on our blog. My husband was born in Uzbekistan, I was born in Ukraine, together we live in America. So our recipes take three cultures and their cuisine and combine them. We also have popular dishes from all the countries with our unique twist on them:). At the top of our home page, if you click on the RECIPE tab, you will see the different categories that are food related. The THIS and THAT tab has family/faith there. ๐Ÿ™‚
      What city in Michigan do you live? We have really close friends there? They’d love to share their homegrown sorrel with you:). Sorrel is almost a must have in any garden in our Ukrainian community.
      I feel very humbled to have not only young people visit our blog. My husband and I are both “old school”. I love being in the company of the wiser who have much to share, I am so honored to have you visit our blog. =) I feel rather special.
      Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas as you celebrate Christ’s birth.

    Valentina, have you tried using a smaller amount of cheese? I used 24 oz Velveeta cheese and it tasted a lit bit cheesy or i would say bitter

    • admin 04/30/2015, 2:20 pm ๎˜Š ๎˜‰

      Jessica, Oh yes!!. You can totally use a smaller amount, sorry forgot to add that to the notes. You can start with 16 oz and just add the right amount for you:).. :)…. Or you can substitute it for mild cheddar cheese.
