Carrot and Cheese Soup

Recipe taken from here. I used larger carrots than I should have so it has a much more carrot-y flavor than in their post.

Ingredients:

  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 leeks, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 cups vegetable broth/stock
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

1) Heat the butter and olive oil in a large pot.

2) Add the onion, leeks, carrot and cook for 5-7 minutes until they begin to soften.

3) Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until you can smell it.

4) Add the flour and stir until it disappears.

5) Add the vegetable broth/stock and bring to a boil.

6) Bring back down to a simmer and simmer for 45 minutes.

7) Remove from the heat and either use an immersion blender or put the soup into a blender and make it smooth.

8) Put the soup back on the heat and add the milk, cheese and mustard and stir until smooth.

9) Season with salt and pepper.
