Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat the butter in a heavy saucepot over moderate heat.
  • Add the onion, celery, broccoli stems, and mushrooms. Sweat the vegetables without letting them brown.
  • Add the flour and stir to make a roux. Cook the roux for a few minutes, but do not let it start to brown.
  • . Gradually beat in the stock. Bring to a boil, stirring with a whip, as it thickens.
  • Simmer until the vegetables are very tender.
  • Skim the soup carefully.. Pass the soup through a food mill to purée it.
  • Pass the puréed soup through a chinois or fine strainer.
  • Add the hot milk to the soup.
  • Heat the soup again, but do not let it boil.
  • Separate the broccoli florets into pieces small enough to be eaten with a soup spoon. Add them to the soup.
  • If the soup is to be served at once, proceed to the next step. Otherwise, cool the soup in a cold water bath and refrigerate until service time. Reheat the soup to a simmer when ready to finish.
  • Add the cheese to the soup and stir until all the cheese is melted.
  • Carefully reheat the soup, but do not let it boil, or else the cheese may curdle or separate.
  • Stir in the heavy cream.
  • Season to taste with salt and white pepper.

    Sounds good (of course Wisconsin cheese is the best!). A favorite out to eat is Wisconsin Beer Cheese Soup. Since I never have beer in the house I haven't tried to make it myself.
