French Chestnut Soup

Share

This French Chestnut Soup is a creamy, wholesome winter comfort food. One of the things I love about visiting France in winter is the aroma of roasting chestnuts at every street corner. They inspired me to make this delicious French chestnut soup.

I start the soup by sautéing the onions before adding the chestnuts, water and rosemary. Then I simmer the soup base for 15 minutes before blending with a hand blender and adding milk. To make the garnish, I cook 8 whole chestnuts in butter. Just before serving bowls of this delicious soup, I gently place the chestnuts on top of each bowl to garnish.

To make the French Chestnut Soup, you will need the following ingredients:
