It’s nearly the middle of March and we’re still getting snow on the ground. Whaaat?! I’m anxious for spring to arrive but at least I can still appreciate a warm bowl of soup given the weather we’ve been having here. With St. Patrick’s Day on the horizon, there’s no better soup so enjoy right now than this Guinness Beer Soup. Topped with toasted croutons, this cheesy soup is rich with Guinness beer and Dubliner cheese will satisfy and warm you up!…
This soup was one my dear friend Howard made to my recent Irish dinner this past weekend. It was an amazing soup to have cooking on the stovetop because it smells fantastic! I especially liked how flavorful it was and the toasted croutons on top really added a nice crunchy texture to the already smooth soup.
recipe from Once Upon a Cutting Board
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 rib of celery, diced
1 carrot, peeled and diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Guinness stout (or more for stronger flavor)
1 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken stock
1 cup milk
1-1/2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons mustard powder
1/4 pound (or 1 cup loosely packed shredded) Dubliner cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Add the chicken broth, milk, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard powder, and let simmer over medium-low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The soup will thicken and reduce slightly as it simmers.
