Instructions Checklist
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook the onions and celery until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour, and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in the chicken stock. Simmer until the celery is tender, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the Brie cheese, and allow to melt for about 5 minutes.

  • Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth, and pour into a clean pot. Heat the soup to almost simmering over medium-low heat. Pour in the cream. To serve, garnish with red and green pepper strips.

I'm a bit of a new cook so I ended up burning the pan when I added the flour. I didn't blend the celery well enough and the soup was entirely too watery which may have been because I refused to add the rind and in getting rid of the rind I lost a bit of cheese. Despite all this it ended up being -really- good which is where all the stars come in. My mom tried it and commented that it seemed unflavorful while my uncle said he liked it. I myself find myself wanting more right now. Imagine how good it would taste if it made it RIGHT! So I intend to make this again properly and then to write a better informed review Read More

I added garlic tarragon thyme 2 bay leaves and red pepper flake. I also finished with julienne sliced green apple and some crisped fake bacon (Morning Star Farms) instead of the peppers. They were a great contrast in flavor. It was fantastic! Served it with a green leaf/apple salad with a lemon vinaigrette. Great meal. Read More

I've made this three times now. Each time I used vegetable stock out of preference and white rice flour due to health issues. I tried it with less cream the first time because I was afraid it would be heavy due to the amount of fat in the brie but it turned out to be lighter than expected. The second and third time I used the whole amount as instructed and in fact it was lighter than a usual "cream of vegetable" soup. The first time I used a popular industrial brand of brie and it was somewhat bland and somewhat bitter. In my next attempts I used a local organic brand and found it much tastier and less bitter. The third time I added a large bunch of fresh spinach when sautéing the onions and celery and it is to die for! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. I would never have thought of this on my own.

Wasn't sure what to expect with this soup - it was like eating melted brie. My husband actually preferred it as a "dip" - thick & creamy. If you like brie you'll want to try this soup. It's a great base & could go in so many different directions depending on your tastes. Will be making this one again & trying different variations. Read More
