2 medium, chopped
2 cup(s), low-sodium

- Heat the oil in a nonstick Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Stir in the mustard and cook 1 minute.
- Add the broth, potatoes, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
- With a potato masher or fork, gently mash some of the vegetables against the bottom of the pan to slightly thicken the soup. Add the beer and milk; bring to a simmer. Remove the soup from the heat. Add the cheese, then stir until the cheese melts. Yields scant 1 1⁄2 cups per serving.
