Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Add a swirl of whipping cream (heavy cream) to each bowl.
  • Cooking mushrooms this way by chopping them finely and simmering them is great for those who don't like the 'mushroom feel' in their mouth, but like the flavour.
  • Vegetarian? Use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
  • Use a good quality chicken stock or, if you go vegetarian, use a vegetable stock. Don't have that available, then use water and bouillon cubes. Works great as well.
