Kate: Cheese Soup

December 18, 2010

This broth is a bit labour intensive but makes lots and freezes to make easy quick soups in future.

2 tb butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 small carrot, finely chopped
2 cups homemade vegetable broth (see below)
2 cups light cream or milk
dash of Tabasco sauce
tsp black pepper
2 c grated cheddar cheese
2 green onions, chopped

Melt butter in heavy pot and saute onion and carrot till tender but not browned. Add broth, bring to boil, cover and simmer 10 minutes. Add cream, Tabasco and pepper, and bring to boil. Remove from heat and stir in cheese till melted. Top with green onions and serve.

Vegetable Broth

c vegetable oil
4 carrots, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
3 large onions, chopped
6 medium-sized potatoes, diced
3 turnips, diced
3 cups parings from scrubbed carrots, potatoes, turnips, parsnips if available
3 quarts water
2 bay leaves, crumbled
1 tb salt
tsp pepper
small bunch parsley

Heat oil in large heavy pot and saute vegetables for 20 minutes, stirring often.

Add remaining ingredients, bring to boil, covered partially, and simmer for 2 hours.
