This easy homemade soup recipe flavored with beer and melty cheddar is rich, cheesy, and quick to make in one pot. Perfect for chilly days!
You'll only need beer, cheese, cream, and a few other simple ingredients to make this easy recipe.
In a large pot, sauté onions and carrots in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then add garlic, butter, and flour, stirring to create a roux.
Pour in broth, beer, and heavy cream. Then add a bay leaf, bring to a boil, and let simmer for 10 minutes until thickened.
Add in shredded cheese, then take the pot off the heat. Cover with a lid and let sit for a few minutes to melt the cheese.
Pluck out the bay leaf, transfer soup to a blender, and puree until smooth.
Finally, season to taste and then serve!
