Potato, Cheddar and Chive Soup

This hearty soup has all the flavour of a stuffed baked potato – but no fork is required. It's ideal for cool nights, hot lunches or outdoor winter events. The flavour of any soup relies
on the stock you use, so homemade is best. However, if you don't have any on hand, a no-salt-added broth will work, too.
