Danish strawberry buttermilk soup – aka koldskål

Summer in Denmark means eating lots and lots of koldskål, which is a cold buttermilk soup with vanilla and lemon. There are lots of ready-made variations in the grocery stores, some are better than others so the past few years I have made my own. It’s really easy to make and I don’t have to worry about which preservatives have been added. And I can also make my own variations. Like this strawberry version which is so much better than the store bought strawberry version. You just can’t beat fresh strawberries.

Thai Green Curry Soup

Yesterday I traveled back to my teenage years when I once again had braces put on. At my own free will too. I have wanted to straighten my front teeth for quite a few years now and yesterday was the first step in doing so.

It hurts and I can’t bite down properly, so soup will be on out menu quite a bit from now on. This soup is amazing; creamy, hot and spicy and packed with flavor. I love Thai green curry dishes, so this soup is perfect for me at the moment.

Potato and Leek Soup with Oven-Fried Bacon

Yes I know that its summer, but as we have found out here at home, that doesn’t mean that you can’t catch a cold. I’m hoping that it goes away very very fast. Being sick in the summer – especially on your vacation – just sucks. So I made a pot of hot and creamy potato and leek soup, hoping that the cold will be gone soon! Luckily its super easy to make. There are not too many ingredients but the soup is still full of flavor. I fried the bacon in the oven because its just easier and a lot less messy. 

Homemade potato soup

With this cold winter weather we’ve been having in Denmark the past few weeks, I thought that it was about time for a bowl of hot homemade soup. I wanted to make potato-leek soup, but the supermarket was out of leeks, so I added a few carrots instead.  This soup is quite thick, so if thats not your thing, just use fewer potatoes or more broth. 

Cauliflower soup with crispy Pancetta and fresh parsley

I asked Sillas what he wanted for dinner the other day and to my surprise he said “Cauliflower soup”. Alright then, cauliflower soup it was. I did’t have a recipe here at home, so I searched the internet and soon found this recipe from a danish magazine.   The ingredients; 1 head of cauliflower 1 baking potato 1 shallot

Chorizo and chickpea soup

Brrr…fall has arrived in Denmark, so I felt like a big bowl of soup. I make this soup every fall/winter. Its super simple and so tasty. Here’s what you need; 4 onions, finely chopped 1 dried chorizo sausage
