Introduction

Introduction

     This is a soup I often enjoyed while growing up. My mother served it with roasted baguette slices or freshly made and sautéed in butter croutons. it is a light soup, but I like adding boiled or roasted potatoes and, more often than not, a boiled or pan fried German Weisswurst.

Make the Roux

  • Melt butter add caraway seeds and slightly roast in the Roux.

Make the Stock1

  • Bring to boil and reduce to simmer grossly sliced parsley root and chopped onion. Simmer for 30 minutes;
  • Blend roux with roasted caraway seeds into stock and simmer for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Be careful, soup will tend to boil over quickly;
  • Strain stock through a fine sieve.

1 Instead of making a homemade stock, substitute a high-quality and favorite, low sodium vegetable stock.

     If you want something more substantial in your soup, I suggest adding a pan roasted German Weisswurst. It adds a fabulous, complimentary flavor.
