Serves:

4 to 6

Ingredients

6 Tbsp
unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
2 c
chopped yellow onions
1
leek, white park only, well rinsed and finely sliced
3
celery ribs
3
carrots, chopped and peeled
1 medium
potato, peeled and diced
1 c
dry white wine or dry vermouth
3 c
chicken stock
1/2 to 3/4 lb
imported roquefort or other blue cheese
salt and pepper,to taste
6 to 8
bacon strips, sauteed crisp and crumbled, for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt the butter in a large heavy pot over low heat. Add the onion,leek,celery and carrots and cook,covered until the vegetables are tender and lightly colored, about 25 minutes,stirring occasionally.
2
Add the potato,white wine, and stock, bring to a boil,reduce the heat and simmer partially covered until very tender about 20 minutes.
3
Remove the soup from the heat and crumble in 1/2 pound of the cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted into the soup, then pour the soup through a strainer, reserving the liquid. Transfer the solid to a food processor or use a food mill fitted with a medium disc. Add 1 cup of the cooking stock and process until smooth.
4
Return the soup to the pot, pour in the rest of the liquid and simmer over medium heat. Taste and correct the seasoning; you may want to add a little more cheese, and the soup may need salt and pepper.
5
Ladle into bowls, garnish with the bacon crumbles and serve immediately.
