No stick blender?: You can use a blender or food processor. Allow the soup to cool a little and transfer to blender/processes in batches to blend. 
Cooking for a baby?: Use homemade or low sodium stock and reduce/omit the cheese to keep sodium levels lower. 
Make it Gluten Free: Make sure to use homemade stock or a stock that is gluten-free. 
Make it Dairy Free: This soup tastes great without the cheese, just skip it. Replace the butter with olive oil. 
Storage: Allow to cool, transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or the freezer for up to 3 months.
