Yield: 4 Servings
|1||Onion, thinly sliced|
|1||Stalk celery, thinly sliced|
|1||Carrot, thinly sliced|
|6 cups||Chicken broth|
|1 can||Chestnuts packed in water (15 oz), drained or 6 ounce can puree|
|Salt and freshly ground pepper|
|1 dash||Madeira or sherry|
|½ cup||Sour cream, optional|
|Snipped chives for garnish, optional|
Heat butter in a medium saucepan. Add the onion, celery and carrot and saute a few minutes to begin the cooking process. Sprinkle on the flour and cook a minute or until slightly browned. Add the broth, cover and simmer 15 minutes or until tender. Add chestnuts or puree and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes longer.
Puree in a blender or food processor and return to a saucepan to reheat. If too thin, simmer over low heat, stirring continuously until thickened or if too thick, add more liquid. Season to taste with salt and pepper, add a dash of Madeira and ladle out. Garnish with sour cream and chives if you wish.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
