  • Stock Pot


  • 2 tbsp Butter or Margarine
  • 1/4 c Onion diced
  • 1/4 c Carrots julienne or grate
  • 1/4 c Celery diced
  • 2 to 3 tbsp All Purpose Flour depending on how thick you'd like your soup

  • In a large pot over medium high heat, add butter, onion, carrot and celery. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the flour and stirring constantly, cook for 1 to 2 minutes just to remove that raw flour taste. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the broth, heavy cream and Dijon mustard.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
  • Next, stir in the cheddar until it melts and fully incorporates.
  • Taste for seasoning, adding more salt and/or pepper if necessary.
  • Top with additional cheddar and parsley, if desired.
