Do you know how to pronounce gouda?
I didn't until recently, it was always "GOO-da" at the old homestead but it seems that is incorrect. It is correctly pronounce "HOW-da."
Go figure. Apparently the Dutch can't spell to save their lives.
At any rate, it's good stuff and this soup is one of our winter favorites with all that tasty howda and wild rice in there. Sticks to your ribs it does.
5 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup onion
16 ounces turkey kielbasa, sliced and halved
4 tablespoons flour
3 14-ounce cans chicken broth
1 cup cooked wild rice
¼ teaspoons pepper
dash of nutmeg
3 cups shredded smoked gouda
2 cups fat free half and half
Saute onion and sausage in butter. Whisk in the flour and mix thoroughly. Slowly add the broth and whisk thoroughly to avoiding making lumps. Bring to a boil then reduce heat slightly and cook for two minutes more.
Add rice, pepper and nutmeg and bring to boil. Remove from heat and add the cheese, stirring until melted, then add half and half and serve.
