Dutch Mustard Soup with Herbal Butter

Dutch Mustard Soup with Herbal Butter

Dutch Mustard Soup with Herbal Butter is, as the title says, a dish from the Netherlands. Part of my family is Dutch, and therefore, I try to get to know this kitchen, too. Recently, I got inspired by a very luxurious taste of “Mosterdsoep” in the Boegschroef Hotel in a very lovely port town called Delfzijl. This recipe is indeed very easy but impressive at the same time. The secret is always in good products, especially the mustard in this case.

This soup gives you a shine during rainy days and works as a miracle against flu, hangover or nausea. Eet smakelijk!

Instructions

The Herbal Butter

First, place all the ingredients into a hand blender: butter, garlic, parsley and a pinch of sea salt. Blend until very smooth texture and taste. Season accordingly.

Mold the mixture onto aluminium foil sheet and wrap like a candy. Refrigerate until serving.

The Soup

Heat up the olive oil in a heavy based casserole pan on high heat and add bacon. Bake until crispy and golden. Take it out from the pan and place it onto paper towel to remove the extra fat.

Lower the heat to low and stir in a knob of butter and onion. Cover with a lid on and sauté until the onion is nicely soft and golden, for about 10 minutes.

Put the bacon back into the pan.

Next, mustard in. Give it a good stir and pour in the stock. Don’t forget to taste. The consistency should be not too liquid and not too thick.

Afterwards, add one chopped potato and the second one grated. I use it instead of flour. Potatoes thicken the soup and give it a nice taste.

Cook until the potatoes are soft, for about 10 more minutes. Finish with fresh chives and parsley.

Serve with a spoon of crème fraîche. Place a good layer of The Herbal Butter on a piece of fresh bread and get some energy. Yummy!

Makes 5 serves.
