Recipe Ingredients for Cheddar Soup with Granny Smith Apples

3 tbsp unsalted butter
1 large diced onion
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp mustard powder
4 cups chicken broth
2 Granny Smith apples
1 cup apple cider
10 oz. grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp tabasco sauce

Recipe Directions for Cheddar Soup with Granny Smith Apples

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until tender and aromatic, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle the flour and mustard powder over the onion and stir evenly to coat. Continue cooking, stirring often, for 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Add the broth, stirring until well-blended. Peel, quarter, and core 1 apple, and finely chop it. Add the apple to the soup, cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and simmer until the apple is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cider and grated cheese and cook a few minutes longer, stirring constantly, until the cheese is fully melted.

  3. Using a blender, puree the soup until smooth. Stir in the Tabasco sauce with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Quarter and core the remaining apple and cut it into 1/2-inch dice. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls, scatter the apple over and serve right away.
