Enzo's Chestnut Soup

A beautiful velvet textured soup that is unlike anything in else you can eat... Delicious!!

Ingredients

  • 1 kg chestnuts

  • 2 onions, chopped

  • 1 litre of vegetable stock

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • salt & cracked pepper

  • toasted croutons

Method

  • 1.

    Cut the chestunts at the top with a sharp cerated knife being careful not to cut yourself and boil in salted water for about half and hour or even better in a pressure cooker for about 10 minutes.

  • 2.

    Let cool slightly and peel both layes of skin off the chestnuts and place in a saucepan with enough stock to cover.

  • 3.

    Sauté onions in a little oil for about 10 minutes and add chestnuts and stock to pot and simmer for about five minutes and then blend with a hand held blender until you have a velvety consistancy.

  • 4.

    Season to taste with salt and serve hot drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and cracked pepper.

  • 5.

    Sprinkle over toasted croutons for that extra crunch

Notes

It is quite a difficult process of peeling the chestnuts but be patient and remove all the skin just leaving the chestnut itself.
