How to do it

1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.

2. Add 1 cup finely chopped onion and cook, stirring, until soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.

3. Add rice and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes more.

4. Add 5 cups broth and wine and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until the rice is very soft and the liquid is greatly reduced, about 25 minutes. Cool slightly.

5. Heat a heavy soup pot over medium heat and add bacon (or pancetta); cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 4 to 6 minutes.

6. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate; pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat in the pot.

7. Add 1 tablespoon oil, 2 medium chopped onions, carrot, celery, garlic and fennel seed. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and just beginning to color, about 5 minutes.

8. Add dry mustard and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more.

9. Add 4 cups broth, potatoes and rutabaga and bring to a boil.Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook until the vegetables are tender but still hold their shape, 15 to 20 minutes. Mash a few of the vegetables against the side of the pot with the back of a spoon and cook for 2 minutes more to slightly thicken the soup.Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the Cream Sauce and heat until steaming but not boiling.

10. Remove from heat; add cheese and stir until melted. Season with pepper.

11. Serve topped with chives (or scallion greens) and the reserved bacon (or pancetta).
