2 teaspoons olive oil

1 cup diced onion

1 cup diced celery

6 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

2 cups mashed potatoes

8 ounces shredded Cheddar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

1 teaspoon dry mustard

Hot sauce, optional


  1. Add oil to a large pot set over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery and saute for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they start to soften. Add stock and mashed potatoes and bring to a simmer.
  2. Using a hand blender or regular blender, puree soup until smooth (when using a regular blender, work in batches to prevent messy cleanups!). Add Cheddar, salt, white pepper, dry mustard and hot sauce. Stir to combine and allow the cheese to melt.
