Parsnip and caramelised onion soup

“A forgotten vegetable”, as one of my colleagues called the parsnip. Much more often used in England then the Netherlands I would say. I love roasted parsnips. The next time I will try to roast them first together with the onions. I will let you know how that worked out. This is a beautiful silky…

Creamy asparagus soup

This recipe is meant to be with green asparagus. But because it’s the season for the white ones, I picked those. Don’t forget if you do so too, to peal the skin of the white asparagus. The outside is tough and difficult to eat. Just an idea, maybe I will try a mix of both…

Praised Chicken

Great Nigella Lawson recipe! Love it. After a rather large and heavy lunch yesterday we needed something light and comforting together. For the big eaters we served the soup with rice, for the conscious one with a cheeky little piece of bread & butter. It probably won’t surprise you when I tell you that some…

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Stilton Soup

The original ingredients of this recipe consist of mainly broccoli and Stilton. Just because our grocery supplier didn’t have enough broccoli in stock, we opted for cauliflower. Also, we changed the dried thyme for dried Italian herbs, which worked out really well. This soup is quite filling, but absolutely gorgeous. It’s great to add this…

Pea, courgette and parmesan soup

Italian-style tomato, chicken and bread soup

I love this soup! It’s my new favorite! Okay, it takes a little time to make, but the result is stunning. Nothing is better then homemade chicken stock. It beats the instant stock cubes by far. Take your time with this recipe. I promise you, it’s a real treat. We might have slightly overdone it…

English onion soup with sage and Cheddar

My first office made onion soup and what a success it was! Thank you again Jamie Oliver for your inspiration. Of course I did have to adapt the recipe a little bit for (to many eaters ;-), but apart from the non-toasted bread and melted cheese, I did follow the method as stated. The stale…
