Black salsify soup with trumpet royale

March 26th, 2019 | main dishes

Waiting for spring. It’s cold again and stormy. Despite calendar start of spring. That makes you want a hot soup. And before we can finally harvest the first wild garlic, whose tips I have already discovered in the garden, there is again, probably one last time for this season, black salsify. A creamy salsify soup with trumpet royale mushrooms, garnished with lemon peel and our best olive oil.

Black salsify soup with trumpet royale

To peel the black salsify please wear rubber gloves! The milky-sticky juice of salsify colors intense brown! Place the peeled sticks in water with a good dash of vinegar until use, otherwise they also will turn brown.

If you want to give the salsify soup a little exotic twist, you can rub a tonka bean over the finished soup instead of nutmeg. Delicious, promised!
