1poundabout 4 cups of vegetable, trimmed and chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 to 1cupcream or milk
1cupshredded Cheddar cheese
minced fresh parsley for garnish
Combine the broth, vegetables, rice (or potato) and bring to a boil. Turn down and simmer about 15-20 minutes, until the vegetables are very tender.
Puree with an immersion blender or food mill or regular blender (let it cool a bit first for anything other than the immersion blender). Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Add the cream. Add the cheese and stir until melted, then garnish with fresh parsley.
I used chicken broth because I had it. You could easily substitute vegetable or beef broth for a different flavor, or even water for a somewhat plainer one. I used the rice for a thickener. His other option is a potato, peeled and quartered.
