Alanna from A Veggie Venture collects soup recipes the whole February. I tried a soup recipe for my new slow cooker. In Germany slow cookers don’t have a great vogue, so I bought a slow cooking book. My sons said the

Directions

The combination of potatoes and cheese just can’t be beat, especially here, in this rich, filling soup.

Place the potatoes and 1 cup of the stock in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours, or until the potatoes are just tender. Transfer two-thirds of the potatoes to a food processor or blender. along with the cooking liquid. Add the garlic. Blend to the desired consistency: a blender will yield a smooth texture, a food processor a rough, rustic consistency. Return the potato puree to the slow cooker and stir in the shredded cheese, the remaining 2/3 cup stock, and the chives. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes, or until the soup is well heated. Add extra stock or water if the soup is too thick. Break up the whole potato slices with a fork to achieve a texture that suits you. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cream just before serving. Ladle into soup bowls, sprinkle with the crumbled cheese, and serve immediately. For a Southwestern version of this soup, use cilantro instead of chives. and add 1 (4-ounce) can chopped roasted green chiles and 1 teaspoon each ground cumin and coriander.

Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula. California. is currently the only United States winery to make wine from the Cortese grape. In northern Italy, the grape is used to make a wine called Gavi di Gavi. It’s a lovely. smooth, relatively light-bodied, crisp white wine that goes well with either version of this soup.

    I have this cookbook too and there are so many good recipes which I have yet to try. I just went to get it off my bookshelf so I can find something to make this weekend.
