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.
When it is asparagus season, it does not matter whether it is white or green, we like to have it both on our menu, so I make either a soup or some side dish out of them. Asparagus is a very healthy vegetable. It is an excellent detoxifier due to its high potassium content since it has a diuretic effect. Further on asparagus contains calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium, beta-carotene, folic-acid and C-, B1-, B2-, B6- vitamins. It is also reach in trace elements. So I can only encourage everyone to make some asparagus dishes. The below simple and colorful soup can even be a main dish for dinner.
This a healthy and really tasty dish. The crispy home-made croutons and the celery chips are especially well going together with this creamy soup. This dish is a guarantee for the fact that celery roots harmonize well with nutmeg.
This dish brings good memories of my grandma. And of course the half done aluminum spoon that she used to make the dumplings with, as the spoon got half size (half of it was basically gone) by the dumplings making… Already the smell of my grandma’s soup was attarctive, but the taste was just incomparable. This can be a main dish for people on fasting. But the others will not miss meat from this vegetable soup dish either.
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.
This is a real good healthy soup. I did not overcook the vegetables because this is how we like it.
This soup is an excellent comfort food after the Christmas period, from more of its advantages just to mention its enter cleaning effects. If we want to focus on cleaning our body, then just leave the meat out. There are several types of lentils. there is e.g. beluga lentils, that is small and dark colored, puy lentil, that is also smaller you can buy it in different colors. This time, since the holidays, I made my soup from gourmet mountain lentils, this also a smaller type. This soup is an excellent choice also for New Year’s Eve. I am sure I will make it again then since I could not go to bed on the 1st without eating lentils.
Beet-root has a gorgeous color, it is a valuable and healty winter vegetable. During the Xmas holidays, we can serve this dish as an easy appetizer.
