The Winter Soup

Crunchy soup? Soup that will make your immune system eat ebola for breakfast? This is it.

Casimirs Winter Soup

  • One onion, fried
- Put in a large pot, add:
  • 8 dl water (or more if needed)
  • 750g cabbage (1/4 head)
  • 100 g diced soup vegetables
  • One purjo = leek, halved coins
  • 3 tablespoons (E.V. Olive) Oil
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, minced
  • 4 large horseradish coins (~50 g)
  • 1/2 cup Almonds, diced finely, soaked/sprouted (~50 g)
  • 4 tablespoons light soy miso
  • 5 large Licorice root coins
  • 8 black peppers
  • 8 black Sichuan peppers
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
- Rolling boil for 20 minutes or more, then the mushrooms after they have had a cold water swim:
  • 4 Cloud Ear Fungus (about 150 g)
  • 10 small Shiitake (100 g)
  • Forest mushrooms, dried, rehydrated (~50 g)
- Boil softly for 20 minutes.

The cabbage, almond crumbles and cloud ear & shiitake are crunchy. The almonds round the taste.

The licorice root brings a slight sweet aftertaste, to the warm delish hot round taste of the soup. The root contains glycyrrhizin, which has a sweet taste - 30–50 times the sweetness of sugar!

Serve with fresh mung sprouts, perhaps some soba -noodles for the hungry.

Don't eat the black peppers or the licorice root! 8) Add more ginger and more shiitake for more immune system kick.
