Superb! This ingenious and flavorful combination of creamy vegetable soup and cheddar cheese is an innovation that Carla’s friends and family request regularly.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter and saute onion, celery, and thyme until vegetables ate soft. Add potatoes, carrots, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Cover with water and cook until vegetables are tender but still solid. Add green pepper and corn and set aside. In large soup pot, melt ¼ cup butter, add flour, and cook until bubbly. Add milk and stir until mixture thickens and boils. Add vegetables and their broth. Stir in cheese, mustard, wine, and parsley. Season to taste.
