Chestnut soup (mf)

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Butter
1 Onion, thinly sliced
1 Stalk celery, thinly sliced
1 Carrot, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon Flour
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
