Chestnut and Pear Soup
saute onions first, then leek and celery
followed by pear, stock, then the chestnuts
after rapid boil, simmer for 45mins
(or less depending on chestnuts used)
my variation was:
1 cup veg broth + 2 cups water (instead of 4 cups of stock)
1 sprig rosemary
used frozen chestnuts
choose to serve it without the cream but used thin slices of pear for garnish
remember the main ingredients were leeks and celery,
so this was slightly thick (not runny) but delightfully light on the tongue!
(and cos I only use the blender for 10 secs) had bits of chestnuts to bite on!
|Dorie Greenspan's Chestnut and Pear Soup|
I had one and half serving of the soup in this bowl
for my dinner in addition to this salad and put the rest in the fridge
with instructions to DH that he needs to reheat the soup when
necessary, by the time I came home from work,
all was gone ~ DH had it for lunch and dinner!
