  3. Meanwhile, add the garlic, broth, mustard and cider to the crock pot and stir to mix well.
  4. When apples and onions are roasted, allow them to cool. When they have cooled gently peel the skins away from the flesh. They should come off very easily. Toss the apples and onions into the crock pot and cook on LOW HEAT for 6 hours.
  5. After 6 hours, add the milk and cheese. Let the cheese melt and season with salt and pepper to taste.Meatless Monday ~ Slow Cooker Roasted Apple Cheddar Soup | The Mountain Kitchen

David did not like this soup and I am not sure why. I liked it! I guess we can agree to disagree on this one…

  1. Yum!! This sounds perfect for this time of year, and the cheddar/apple combination is delicious!

  2. Apple and cheddar is a very unique combination. I would love to try this!

    • I hope you will give it a try. David didn’t like it, but he did eat it so it wasn’t awful to him. I even dunked apple slices into it. 🙂

  3. Yum! If I had seen this a month ago, I probable wouldn’t have been tempted to make it, but I just tried an apple/parsnip soup the other day and it was amazing. Love the pairing of apple and cheddar, so I’ll have to try this out.

    • I know what you mean. I have never thought of an apple as savory, but this is the second soup I have made with apples in it. I really like the apple cheddar apple combination also!
      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  4. Well…really David Spivey the meat and potatoes man?! Um…Cheryl
