This chowder is the best. The. Best.
1. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper and cook until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
2. Add flour to pot and stir to incorporate all ingredients and form a roux. Cook 1 minute.
3. Add a few tablespoons of stock and stir until any lumps of flour are worked out. Add the rest of the stock and stir to combine.
4. Tie thyme, bay leaves, and parsley together with a piece of kitchen twine to form a bouquet garni. Add to the soup and stir.
5. Add chopped potatoes to soup and stir. Bring to a simmer, then cook 20-25 minutes until potatoes have cooked and stock has reduced.
6. Add milk and half-and-half to soup and stir. Return soup to a simmer and cook 10 minutes so that the milk has a chance to reduce.
7. Flake the smoked salmon into the soup, then add the corn kernels. Cook an additional 10-15 minutes until soup has reduced to the desired consistency. Remove bouquet garni before serving.
8. Ladle into bowls and garnish with extra smoked salmon and chopped green onions. Serve immediately.
I have been trying to make beer cheese soup successfully for years and I think it was the addition of butternut squash that sealed the deal. It not only helps with the flavor, but also the consistency. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite beers; Great Lakes Brewery’s Edmond Fitzgerald Porter. Add to that two types of cheddar and Gouda cheese and you’ve got a winner!
When the nip in the air becomes a definite chill then it’s time. It’s time for soup. There is no more comforting or sustaining a soup than Baked Potato Soup with Sausage and Roasted Peppers. When there is a fire crackling in the fireplace and this soup is on the table, all is well in our world regardless of what is going on outside.
