Cheese Soup

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 finely diced onions
3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 large potato, cubed
1-2 carrots, cubed
about 1 cup cauliflower or celery, diced
4-5 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1/4 pound bacon or ham, diced
few grindings of pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, such as Gouda, Swiss, Jack...

In heavy bottomed saute pan or saucepan, heat the olive oil. Do not let it get too hot so that it is smoking, just nice and hot. Add the onion, garlic, potato, carrots and cauliflower. Cook and stir for 4-5 minutes, getting the onions and garlic cooked. Add the stock and bring to a boil, reduce to simmer while you brown the bacon or ham in a skillet. (this can be done ahead) Add bacon or ham to soup, cook on simmer for about 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender to your liking. Turn off the heat, add the pepper and cheese and stir until cheese is mostly melted. Taste for seasonings, adding salt if needed. Serve!
