Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 quarts (1.4 L) chicken broth
  2. cup (30 g) finely diced celery
  3. cup (30 g) finely diced green bell pepper
  4. cup (30 g) shredded carrot
  5. cup (15.2 g) chopped fresh parsley
  6. teaspoon pepper
  7. 1 pound (455 g) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  8. 12 ounces (360 ml) light beer
  9. teaspoon salt or Vege-Sal
  10. teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  11. Guar or xanthan

Cooking Instructions

Combine the broth, celery, green pepper, carrot, parsley, and pepper in your slow cooker.

Cover the slow cooker, set it to low, and let it cook for 6 to 8 hours (even a bit longer won't hurt).

When the time's up, either use a hand-held blender to puree the vegetables right there in the slow cooker or scoop them out with a slotted spoon, puree them in your blender, and return them to the slow cooker.

Now whisk in the cheese a little at a time until it's all melted in.

Add the beer, salt or Vege-Sal, and hot pepper sauce and stir until the foaming stops.

Use guar or xanthan to thicken your soup until it's about the texture of heavy cream.

Re-cover the pot, turn it to high, and let it cook for another 20 minutes before serving.
