Cheesy Leek and Mustard Soup
I made a few modifications of my own and came out with the best soup I have ever made!!! Probably not the healthiest but delicious for sure.
First, I cut up some Bacon (about 12 strips), fried it in the soup pot first... removed the crumbles after they were crisp and then used the bacon fat to fry up the veggies. I added some veggies from my garden... Bell Peppers, Onions, Leeks... after they were cooked tender, I added corn starch and made a rue with the bacon fat... added water and milk and instead of using mustard powder, I squeezed in some dijon mustard. Then added the carrots and potatoes.
After it was all cooked through, I used the immersion mixer and blended all the veggies. I used a shredded 3 cheese blend that I already hand in the fridge, also added some additional spices for a little extra flavor. Cayenne, paprika, Cumin, a little nutmeg and some basil...
At the end I added the bacon crumbles back into the mix... YUMMY!!!
