How to make it
- Step one:
- In a large saucepan, combine the veggies and the beer.
- Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until tender.
- Cool, then whirl mixture 2 C. at a time in a blender or food processor. Set aside.
- Step Two:
- In second saucepan, heat the butter and over low heat cook the flour for a few minutes.
- Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly until the mixture is thickened and smooth.
- Step Three:
- To the mixture, add the pureed vegetables and beer mixture.
- Add meat if desired and heat through.
- Add the shredded cheese.
- Remove from heat.
- Stir the mixture to melt the cheese.
- Season the soup with worcestershire, salt, and pepper.
- I often sprinkle chopped green onions on top just before serving.
- You can easily vary the veggies or the meat. I often also add mushrooms. Diced cooked chicken is also flavorful this way.
- So many options, so little time!!...
