Winter Soup Recipes
#4
ST. NICHOLAS SOUP
2 leaks or onions
5 medium carrots
2 turnips
5 potatoes
½ head medium cabbage
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
4 quarts water
Croutons for garnish

Peel and dice vegetables.  Shred the cabbage.

Melt butter in soup pot.  Add the vegetables and salt, and stir.  Turn off heat, cover, and let rest for 15 – 20 minutes.

Add water and bring pot to a boil.  Reduce to low or medium heat, cover and cook slowly for 30-40 minutes.

When finished, purée in a blender until creamy and smooth.

This recipe is from From A Monastery Kitchen by Brother Victor-Antoine d’ Aila-Latourrette

It also calls for 1/3 cup minced chervil as a garnish, along with croutons, but I’ve never been able to find chervil.

I will add garlic.  If I have cloves I’ll dice 2-3 and sauté them in the butter, otherwise I’ll use granules.  I also add a dash of cumin.  I usually make this in a crock pot, and simmer it on low all night.

I make gallons of winter soups from peas and lentils, as I live in the Palouse region of eastern WA and northern ID, the lentil “capital” of the US http://www.pea-lentil.com, though I tend to be more “free form” with those, rather than use a recipe.  Chopped onions, carrots, celery, and corn are ingredients that go well with lentils.  I usually add sausage or diced ham, or clams (canned from Costco) for a Friday soup.  Lentils, onions, celery, corn, diced tomatoes, sausage or hamburger, and bbq sauce (or some honey and brown sugar) make a hearty chili.  For variation, and to “bulk up” the soup, I may add wheat berries, cooked barley, or cooked rice.

In addition to salt I will add pepper, garlic (chopped cloves if I have them, otherwise granules), cumin, Worchestershire Sauce, and bay leaf to any soup I make.
