  1. Melt butter in sauce pan over low heat. Add flour and mix well, cooking until it just starts to turn golden.

  3. Strain through fine sieve.
  4. Return veloute to sauce pan over low heat and add brie cheese, cook slowly, stirring occasionally, until the cheese has melted. Add wine and vegetables and simmer lightly until the vegetables are al dente. Heat heavy cream over low heat and add to soup. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with fresh chives or scallion.

What a great soup! I used only peas (instead of all the veggies listed) which really simplified the recipe. While browning the flour I added two sliced cloves of garlic. I didn't want to share t...

Very good, easy to make. I choose not to strain it. I didn't add the mushroom or wine, and had to substitute 2 cups of milk for some of the Chicken stock. Finished product is different, but GOOD!
