Ingredients

  • 3 cups diced white onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 3 cups chopped carrots
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 4 cups chopped and peeled potatoes cut into small bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 cups shredded Asiago cheese
  • 6-8 strips of bacon cooked crisp & crumbled

Instructions

  • In a dutch oven, or large pot, melt the butter over medium high heat, watching carefully so it doesn't burn.
  • As soon as the butter's melted, add in the onions, celery, and carrots and saute, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  • Stir in the potatoes, wine, and stock. Reduce to a simmer, over medium low, cover, and continue cooking for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from heat and stir in the cream and Asiago, continuing until the soup's smooth.
  • You decide the consistency-- serve as is, or use an immersion blender to churn it up until it's one creamy consistency.
  • Garnish with bacon and more cheese before serving.

Notes

To make this soup vegetarian-- use vegetable broth and omit the bacon.
