DIRECTIONS

  • Place cilantro leaves in a blender with 1 cup of the chicken stock and blend to form a puree. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the onion and garlic, and sauté until soft but not brown. Add the flour and stir to make a roux. Gradually add the remaining broth, stirring with a whisk after each addition.
  • Add the cilantro puree, stirring to blend thoroughly. Cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes. The soup may be made ahead up to this step.
  • Stir in the cream, place in serving bowls and garnish with shredded cheese and a cilantro sprig if desired.
