Cream of Celery & Cheese Soup
« on: August 20, 2012, 11:47:26 am »
My first recipe post - a conversion of one of my mother's soup recipes.  It could probably be tweaked or simplified a bit but is very tasty as is

Name of Recipe: Cream of Celery & Cheese Soup
Number of People: 4
200g bacon
300g celery ( large celery), leaves and stalks - chopped into large lengths
1 large potato - peeled and chopped into large pieces
2 onions - peeled and halved
2 cloves garlic - peeled
2 tbsp fresh or 2 tsp dried coriander
1 tbsp stock paste concentrate (or equivalent powdered stock)
tsp bicarbonate of soda
600g water
120g tasty cheese
200g cream

Fry bacon on the stove - you can keep the rashers whole at this stage - no need to chop.
Place cheese in TM bowl and grate on speed 7 for a couple of seconds.  Set aside and rinse bowl.
Place vegies (celery, potato, onions, garlic) and bacon (broken into large pieces) into TM bowl with stock paste and water.  Chop for 2 - 3 seconds on speed 4, using the spatula to help move the contents about.
Cook at Varoma temp for 3 minutes on speed 1. When the time sounds, add bicarb and cook at 100 degrees for 12 minutes on speed 1.
Blend the soup by slowly turning the speed dial from 1 to speed 10 and keep at speed 10 for 10 seconds.
Add cream and stir at 70 degrees at speed 3 for 1 minute.
Add grated cheese and continue to stir at speed 2 for another 2 minutes (no need to set a temperature).
Serve with a swirl of extra cream in each bowl and parsley or coriander to garnish if desired.
