  • White onion, 3 large pieces
  • Carrot, 1 piece

  1. Bring the broth to a boil. Peel the potatoes and carrot. Dice the potatoes into small cubes, and grate the carrot using a coarse grater. Add them to the broth. Cook until soft.

Soup: 2. Peel and finely dice the onions. Heat butter (about 1 tablespoon) in a pan, add the onions, and sauté, stirring frequently. The onions should become translucent but not browned. Add the onions to the broth and cook for about 5 minutes.

  1. Remove the soup from the heat, let it cool slightly, and add the processed cheese, cut into pieces (it can be flavored, e.g., herbal or with ham).
