Recipes for children, by children: Easy potato Soup


My daughter loves soup. Make her a soup and she is happy. It is a pleasure to watch her eat. She is also the one who spends the most time in the kitchen with me. Even if she just sits on the workbench, which is the only place to sit in my tiny kitchen, to watch me.

Here is her first recipe that she came up with all by herself when she was five. It is very easy, and you can either use stock or cubes and it works well both with fresh or frozen herbs.

Dissolve 1 cube of vegetable stock in half a liter of boiling water. Add about 8 large potatoes, peeled and cut into similar sized chunks. Cook until they are soft, but not too soft. Remove from stove and add 50 g of butter, 150 ml of cream and 50 g of cream cheese. Puree with a handheld mixer until smooth. Then all you need to do is add a little bit of cracked black pepper and some of your favourite herbs.

    Great photographs. White soup in a white bowl is always challenging for me, but your shots look amazing.
