Soup with liver dumplings, aka Leberknödel Suppe, is such a traditional German soup that brings back so many memories. Served with some nice fresh crusty homemade artisan bread, it makes a nice light supper.
A typically Bavarian soup, this is usually made with beef or calves liver and a strongly flavored beef broth.
Below are two recipes, first mine and then Dino's (shown above).
Dino Schmidt shared his recipe on our Facebook page. He's in Germany and can buy his Leberknödel already prepared. Here's his posting and my English translation follows.
Suppengrün: Is purchased in Germany as a bundle and usually has a leek, a carrot, and some celery root. Parsley, turnips, and onions are sometimes included.
I like the way Dino cooks. It's like a bit of this and a bit of that. Just like my Oma and my Mutti did, and now how I usually cook as well. Thanks, Dino, for sharing this with us!
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of Oma's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook! With the no-risk guarantee ... I know you'll LOVE it! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Do take a quick peek ...
What a perfect way to include liver into the diet. Liver is a very concentrated source of vitamins and is high in protein. It's well known to be an excellent source of iron, as well.
However, finding liver recipes that are delicious can be difficult. I find it interesting when I hear that children usually love this soup. So, give this one a try.
Or, try this one. It's been a favorite at our house for many years.
