Bavarian Herb Soup
Serves: 4
Bavarian Herb Soup (Krautsuppe) - Bitter herbs are traditionally eaten at Easter in Christian countries as a sign of penitence. This Bavarian soup is served on Easter Thursday, known as Maundy Thursday. Fresh chervil, easily available in any German market, is usually the dominating flavor. This is a delicate fresh-tasting soup for any time of the year.
  • 1 lb herbs (chervil, watercress, spinach, sorrel, dandelion and pimpernel)
  • 4 T butter
  • 1 lg onion,chopped
  • 1 qt water (or vegetable stock)
  • 1 lg potato,peeled and chopped into small cubes
  1. You will need a large saucepan.
  2. Pick over and wash the herbs, stripping the leaves from those stalks which are too woody. Chop the rest.
  3. Melt the butter in a deep pan and fry the onion gently until get transparent.
  4. Add the herbs and sweat them for a moment before you pour in the water or broth.
  5. Add the potato to the soup.
  6. Bring thesoup to a boil, and then turn down the heat.
  7. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  8. Mash the potato in the soup to thicken it a little.
  9. Taste, and add salt and freshly milled pepper.
  10. Serve with bread croutons fried in butter or bacon fat (goose fat is even better).
