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.
