Sinful Asiago Bisque

image

Back in November and December I held several Stamp A Stacks. I served up three soups with bread and Cesar  salad.  The soups were huge hits! Several people asked for the recipes. I would love to say that  they were old family recipes passed down from generations, each improving as he/she passed it along. Regretfully, there is no great story……just a great soup directly from Pinterest. But hey, someone passed it down, right?

I have made this soup several times this winter and have found that varying the amounts of veggies used will dramatically change the taste and color. For instance, I once decided to just us up all the carrots in the fridge……just as yummy, but definitely a different taste.

Try it out and let me know what you think!

-4 tablespoons butter

-3 Cups chopped carrots

-3 Cups chopped onion

-1 Cup chopped celery

-4 Cups peeled and chopped potatoes

-2 Cups chicken stock

-2 Cups half and half

-1 Cup white wine

-2 Cups shredded Asiago cheese

-6 slices of cooked bacon, chopped (optional)

Instructions:

– in a large saucepan, melt butter and sauté onions, celery and carrots until tender.

-Add chicken stock, wine and potatoes, cover and cook for 20 minutes.

– Stir in half and half and Asiago cheese.

-Use an immersion blender and emulsify soup until creamy. I choose to use a food processor.

– Serve hot. Garnish with bacon, if desired.

When I make this soup, I make it in very large batches and freeze. I wasn’t sure how it would hold, but it did amazingly well.

ENJOY,

Over the weekend I will post a recipe for a second soup I served at stamp a stacks this past holiday season. It is a knock off of Olive Gardens Zuppa Toscana–a spicy sausage soup with kale…my kids favorite.
