Directions:
In a large stock pot, combine vegetable stock, potatoes, onion, carrots, brandy, and nutmeg. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes. While vegetables are cooking, in a separate saucepan melt butter and whisk in flour to make a roux. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently and eventually adding milk to the roux slowly till it thickens (about 10 minutes). Add roux mixture to the vegetables and stir on simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in cream and shredded cheese for 5 more minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add chopped spinach just before serving. Garnish with a little shredded cheese, a few spinach slices, and fresh ground nutmeg.
