Artichoke Cheddar Soup

August 28, 2017Teresa

 Gluten Free Living – 2017

I hit a home run with this recipe a few weeks ago. No kidding. Artichoke Cheddar Soup is absolutely mouthwatering! This creamy, comforting soup is filled with cream, half-and-half and cheddar cheese to give it a thick delicious base. I added matchsticks carrots, leeks, onions, garlic and celery along with the artichokes. A pinch of red pepper flakes provides just enough oomph to give the soup some pizzazz. Yes, this is the perfect soup to start your fall dinner menus!

Back in mid-July I got called for Jury Duty at the Ellis County Courthouse south of Dallas. I never dreamed I would actually have to sit on a jury. What an experience! We took a lunch break each day and I found myself walking to The Dove’s Nest restaurant down town (a couple of blocks away). One of those days they featured an Artichoke Cheddar Soup on their menu. Unfortunately, it was not gluten free so I didn’t order it. But I thought to myself: I’m going to go home and try my hand at an Artichoke Cheddar Soup.

It was the ultimate in creamy, scrumptious soups. I based this soup on my Panera Bread Broccoli Cheese Soup copycat recipe. I added a few things, took out a few things, but the end result was something to write home about! Even though you can purchase artichoke hearts that are not marinated, I went ahead and rinsed and drained the artichokes before adding them to the soup. I’m glad I did. I think the briny taste would have been too much otherwise.

I made the soup for a friend from our church that I get together with once or twice a month for lunch. I served it with Artichoke Hummus and lots of veggie dippers. We both drooled over the soup. It was so smooth and wonderful. I think we each had two servings!

If you’re looking for an utterly delightful fall soup to make as the days start cooling down, then you’ve got to give Artichoke Cheddar Soup a shot. If you enjoy artichokes in other things, you’ll love them in soup! Hey, they’re not just for dip or hummus, even though they’re terrific in those appetizers! This soup is hearty, filling and fully satisfying. Guaranteed! 🙂
