Pastor Simonsen’s wife, Joan, served this in their home during a progressive supper, years and years ago. It’s still the best cheese soup I’ve ever tasted.
1/2 c. carrots
1/2 c. celery
1/4 c. onion
Finely chop all three; sauté in 1/2 stick margarine (NO! Use butter!) until transparent.
1/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Salt and pepper to taste (Use approx. 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper)
1 qt. milk
1 qt. chicken broth
Add 1 pound of sliced Velveeta. Heat until hot; do not boil as it can curdle.
Makes 2 quarts.
