Beer & cheese soup

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Onions, diced
1 cup Celery, diced
1 cup Carrots, diced
1 cup Mushrooms, diced
¾ cup Butter
½ cup Flour
1 teaspoon Mustard, dry
5 cups Chicken stock (or vegetable)
1 Broccoli bunch
11 ounces Beer (use a can or bottle and save a swallow for the cook!)
6 ounces Cheddar cheese, grated
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated

Saute the diced vegetables in butter. Mix flour and mustard into sauted vegetables. Add the chicken or vegetable stock to mixture and cook for five minutes.

Break broccoli into small florets; cut stems into bite-sizes pieces.

Steam until tender-crisp.

Add beer and cheeses to the soup. Simmer 10-15 minutes. Check seasonings. To serve, place some broccoli into a soup bowl and ladle the soup over it.


* An easy quick tummy-warming soup -- One of my favorite cold-weather soups, this recipe came from a friend of a friend of a friend. The listed vegetables are really just suggestions. Use whatever suits your fancy, or is in the refrigerator.

* Because of the cheese, this soup doesn't survive a night in the refrigerator very well.
