I have bought some spring parsnips that was full of parsley. This gave the idea to cook a cream soup out of it. The fresh characteristic taste of the parsley was well compensated with the butter and the cream. The garlic crouton harmonizes well with the soup.
In winter we cannot get bored of soups. I would like to recommend you now a soup that does not only keep you warm but it is also healthy. You can also make it without sausage, I like to cook it in in a lot of soups in winter for its taste.
From twelfth-night till cremation is the time of carnival. This the time to party to attend balls, eat and drink. So the traditional meals this time of the year contain a lot of meat so that after drinking alcohol, these heavier dishes can help to settle the stomach, body and the soul when you are having hangover. Let’s start the carnival dishes with a traditional smoked pork leg soup, which I had learnt how to make from my dear father, so cooking it brings back nice memories too.
