Recipe Ingredients for Blue Cheese and Bacon Soup

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 leeks halved lengthwise, washed well and chopped
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 1/2 cups cauliflower, broken into small florets
2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
1/2 cup water
5 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

Recipe Directions for Blue Cheese and Bacon Soup

  1. To cook bacon: heat a skillet over medium-high heat, add bacon 3-4 strips at a time (do not over-crowd pan). Cook until crispy on one side then flip over and cook until crispy throughout. Remove strips from pan and place on a paper towel to draw off remaining fat. Repeat with remaining bacon untill all are cooked. Use as needed.

  2. Melt butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add leeks, mushrooms and cauliflower. Cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.Add broth and water; bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until vegetables are very tender.

  3. Puree soup in batches in a blender or food processor. Return pureed soup to soup pot. Add blue cheese to last batch of soup and puree until smooth. Heat through, if necessary.

  4. Before serving, top with crumbled bacon.
