Vegetable Soup... aka Chowder
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Of course you can add any additional veggies and herbs as desired! This is a basic recipe, and is always different each time you make it! Enjoy!
1 medium onion, finely chopped
Finely chop all of the vegetables, or use a food processor to finely mince them. In a heavy bottomed stock pot heat the olive oil and then add the vegetables and cook and stir about 5 minutes. Add the stock, salt, pepper and herb seasoning. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer and cook about 10-15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender to your liking. In measuring cup or small bowl whisk the flour into the milk. Very slowly drizzle it into the hot soup, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over medium high heat until thickened, several minutes. Blend in the cheese and heat just to melt. Do not let it boil. Stir in the chopped parsley, taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Serve!
