Fall and winter have always been "soup time" for me. That's when I drag out all the old recipes or try new ones. This one is new for me, but not a new dish by any means. It's another favorite from the L.S. Ayre's Tea Room (1905-1990).

How to Make CANADIAN CHEESE SOUP

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, melt butter and saute onions lightly. Add flour and cornstarch. Then add milk and stock, making a smooth white sauce (stir constantly).
  2. Add soda, vegetables, seasonings and cheese. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and thoroughly blended in. Just before serving, add the chopped parsley. Serve hot with a crusty garlic bread.
  3. NOTE: You might want to steam or cook the carrots and celery till almost tender in a separate pan before adding to the soup.
