French Brie Cheese Soup

Here's another great French Soup that is creamy and delicious.
I serve it with large homemade croutons or you could use toasted slices of a crusty baguette.

French Brie Cheese Soup:

8 TBS butter, divided
4 C thinly sliced leeks, white part only
1/2 C sliced mushrooms
1/2 C Dry Sherry
6 C Vegetarian Chicken Stock
6 TBS flour
12 oz. French Brie Cheese. rind removed and cubed
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Chopped fresh Chives for garnish

Heat 2 TBS of butter in a soup pot
Add leeks and saute 5 minutes
Add mushrooms and cook 1 minute
Stir in the Sherry and simmer to reduce by half
Add stock and bring to a boil

In a small bowl, mix 6 TBS butter with the flour and form a paste.
Whisk this into the soup, slowly.
Return to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to low, stir in the cheese , a few pieces at a time until incorporated.
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Garnish each bowl of soup with Chives

Peace in the Kitchen!
