A delightful starter to any meal, the addition of bread makes this soup into a meal itself.

What You'll Need

  • 8 Ounces Brie Cheese, rind cut off, cut into cubes
  • 2 Large Apples (about 1 pound), peeled, cored, and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 Sweet Yellow Onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 Stalk of Celery, roughly chopped
  • 2 1/2 Cups of Chicken Stock or Water
  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter, unsalted

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (for garnish, optional)

How to Make It

  • Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Add the onions, apples, and celery. Saute until soft (about 8 - 10 minutes).
  • Add the flour to make a roux (this is what will thicken the soup) and continue to cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Pour in the chicken stock or water while continuing to whisk the mixture.
  • Add the white pepper, cumin, and ginger. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce temperature to a simmer and continue to cook for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the mixture from heat and puree in a blender or food processor.
  • Return the pureed mixture to the pot and bring back to a medium temperature.
  • Add the cheese cubes. After the cheese has melted, mix together well.
  • Add salt to your taste.
  • Just before serving whisk in the heavy cream and sprinkle on chives and nutmeg.
  • Serve with good bread.
