This classic vegetable soup is simple, however, the Roquefort (sheep milk blue cheese from South of France) gives it so much more flavor!

Serves 6


  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 zucchinis
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1 leek
  • 1 onion
  • 2 bay leaves
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of herbes de Provence
  • 1 liter and half of water
  • 100g of Roquefort (Stilton or Gorgonzola)


  1. Peel the potatoes, the onion, and the carrots.
  2. Wash and rinse the potatoes, the onion, the carrots and the zucchinis.
  3. Wash in water with a few drops of white vinegar the leek and the celery (to remove all the dirt), rinse properly.
  4. Cut the potatoes, the carrots, and the zucchinis into small cubes.
  5. Slice the onion, the leek and the celery.
  6. In a large cooking, pan adds all the vegetables and the 2 bay leaves.
  7. Add the salt, the black pepper, and the herbes de Provence.
  8. Pour 1 liter and half of water.
  9. Cook on a medium heat for 35 minutes.
  10. When it’s cooked, remove the bay leaves and mix the soup in a blender.
  11. Serve in a bowl add on the top a little of Roquefort and dust with herbes de Provence.

This soup is classic, warm and the Roquefort brings a creamy texture.

You can eat this soup without cheese too. When I cook I try to avoid the ready made stock and stock cube. If you prefer a thicker soup add less water.

Bon Appetit!
