Creamy Brie & Apple Soup

When it comes to food pairings, apples and brie make a delectable combination.  There is something about the creamy cheese and the sweet crunch of an apple that makes this a winning pair.  Whether you put in on crackers, or melted in a sandwich, it is always  crowd pleaser at any time of the day.  So when we can across this creamy brie and apple soup we could not wait to give it a whirl.  We are big fans of soup when the weather gets colder, so awe are always on the hunt for new soup recipes.  This one did not disappoint and it is super simple which we love!  It is perfect for a Sunday evening, or to serve as the soup portion at a dinner party :)

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 Braeburn apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 ounces Brie, rind removed (1/2 cup chopped)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

In a medium saucepot, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion and celery, and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until browned and tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in apples and broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and simmer about 10 minutes or until apples are very tender. 

Transfer apple mixture to a blender. Add Brie and salt, and purée.

Return soup to the saucepot and heat over medium heat until hot. Serve garnished with thyme.
