Enzo's Chestnut Soup

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


  • 1 Kg Chestnuts

  • 2 Onions, chopped

  • 1 Litre of Vegetable Stock

  • Extra Virgin Olive oil

  • Salt & Cracked Pepper

  • Toasted croutons


  • 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


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