My mother-in-law (rest her soul) gave me a legionnaire cookbook from New Brunswick (I need to insist that she was a vet, not auxiliary). This recipe is adapted from that book and is great for when things are moving or you are on the go!

  • Portion size 6 servings
  • Credits : Richard Cormier


  • 2 potatoes diced
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour (Whole grain works fine)
  • 1 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 cups milk


- combine the potatoes, onion, celery pepper and stock is large saucepan and boil until tender (about 8 to 10 minutes) - meanwhile melt butter is a small saucepan - add flour and stir constantly until bubbling - add milk and stir until slightly thickened - add Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder and cheese until melted - incorporate into vegetable and stock - add tomatoes and heat to serve * Tip: the type of cheese depends on personal preference (or whatever is on hand)so long as it not a dry cheese as they tend to clump). Variations: I have successfully added bacon and sauteed the vegetables instead of boiling and added seafood (clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops and firm white fish) for an amazing seafood chowder.
