Two Soups, One Book

These are recipes 9 and 10 from our challenge to try one new recipe a week for a year. We are still having some cool days here in southern Ontario, and the perpetual rain has raised the lake levels almost a metre. We find ourselves turning to comforting soups again and again. These recipes are from Williams-Sonoma “Soup of the Day” cookbook. 

Becky picked out Parmesan Straciatella with Kale. We still have two bags of kale in the freezer so any new recipes to use that up are very welcome indeed. This is so easy that it barely needs a recipe and it’s very quick to make. 

Chop the kale and bring the chicken or vegetable stock to a boil. Put the kale in the soup bowls. Mix a small amount of cornflour with a tsp of water. Whisk eggs. We only used one for both of us. Add eggs to the cornstarch. Stir Parmesan cheese into the soup. Stir and then slowly drizzle the eggs into the soup. Leave it off the heat for a couple of minutes. Ladle the soup over the kale. 

How easy is that? And it tastes good. 

I chose kielbasa and Sauerkraut Soup. Chop kielbasa and fry for a minutes. Add a sliced onion and 2 cloves of garlic minced. 

When the onion is soft, grate a peeled potato into the pot and add 3 cups chicken stock. Cook for 10 minutes and then add 250g, or whatever amount looks right, of drained sauerkraut and a tbsp tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes. Season and serve. 

We both loved this recipe as well. 

Two new soup recipes and both were winners! One was super fast, they both used ingredients we had on hand and they were both tasty. 

Have a great week!

  1. I have a love-hat relationship with kale. Still, I would love a bowl of the kale soup, please.
