Beemster Cheese Soup With Herbs
Yield: 4 Servings
3-1/2 ounces Beemster Classic, grated finely
7 ounces Beemster Classic, coarsely grated
1 tablespoon flour
1-3/4 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
1 zucchini, in cubes
2 cups milk
1 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons chives, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
freshly ground salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 °F.
Mix the grated Beemster Classic with the flour and spoon 8 mounds of cheese on a cookie sheet lined with baking parchment. Bake in the oven for 3-5 minutes to form nice flat wafers.
Leave the wafers on the cookie sheet to cool. Melt the butter in a stock pot and lightly sauté the onion and zucchini for 3-5 minutes.
Stirring constantly, add the milk and both and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth and creamy.
Stirring constantly, add the grated Beemster Classic a little at a time until it melts. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Serve the cheese soup in warmed soup plates and garnish with a generous amount of herbs with a cheese wafer on top.
