Recipe Ingredients for Cheddar Cheese Soup With Vegetables

1/4 cup butter
6 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 cup white wine
5 cups chicken stock
1/4 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup of celery, chopped
1 small carrot (thinly sliced)
1/4 medium green pepper, seeded and diced
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups potatoes, diced
2 cups heavy cream (heated over low heat do not boil)

6 bacon (fried crisp and crumbled)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Recipe Directions for Cheddar Cheese Soup With Vegetables

  1. # Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the flour and white pepper and cook until smooth (this is a "roux")

  2. # Cook roux another 1-2 minutes but do not allow it to brown

  3. # Remove from heat and set aside

  4. # In another small sauce pan, reduce the wine over medium heat until 1/4 cup remains and then add dry mustard, stir and set aside

  5. # Place vegetables in a 3-4 quart soup pot, add chicken stock and cook until the vegetables are crisp tender (about 5-6 minutes)

  6. # Add half of the butter/flour mixture (roux) to the cooked vegetables, stirring with a wire whisk until thickened (use remaining roux only if needed for desired thickness)

  7. # Slowly add heated cream while stirring, until soup is correct consistency

  8. # Remove from the heat and add the cheese a little at a time while stirring and the cheese is melted

  9. # Add the reduced wine and stir to combine

  10. # Correct seasoning (taste before adding salt as cheese is already salty)

  11. # Add half the crumbled bacon to the soup and stir again

  12. # Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish each bowl of soup with more bacon crumbs
