Hot Apple Soup!

J0182665

This is a really simple soup, and all it needs is a loaf of good bread and herb butter, as well as a tossed green salad to complete it! Add some sliced chicken/apple sausage to the saute process if you'd like something a little heartier. A chilled chardonnay is the perfect accompaniment!

1 tbsp butter

1 large onion, chopped

1 quart (4 cups) chicken stock

2 large green apples, cored, peeled and chopped , or you can  subsitute really good organic apple sauce!

1 cup of mixed bell peppers

3/4 tsp curry powder or to taste

Juice of 1/2 large lemon

Shredded smoked Gouda/Jarlsberg or cheddar cheese

  1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup half and half

Melt 1 tbsp butter in large saucepan over med-high heat. Add onion and sauté until soft but not brown.  Stir in stock, apples, curry powder and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for about 10 minutes.

Melt remaining butter in another large saucepan over medium heat until foam subsides. Blend in flour and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Gradually stir in soup until well blended.  When mixture reaches boiling point, remove from heat.

Strain into first saucepan, pressing apple and onion with back of spoon.    Simmer until heated through.
