“About once a week I like to clean out my fridge and cook up some dish with whatever is lurking in the vegetable bin. This soup is an example of a happy and delicious combination of flavors. I know it's a lot of ingredients, but it's well worth the effort. You may wish to serve this soup the next day as it improve in taste with time. ” - by simone stevin
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat the butter and olive oil in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir in the garlic, shallots, and ginger, and cook until fragrant but not brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the green onions, cauliflower, parsnip, and mushrooms, and cook and stir an additional 5 minutes. Add the pear, beans, mustard, and dill, and stir just until heated, about 1 minute.
- Stir in the wine and thyme, and turn up the heat to high. Boil, stirring constantly, until the wine is reduced by half and is syrupy, about 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth. Return the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, partly covered, until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Allow the soup to cool slightly.
- Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.
- Stir in cream, and, if needed, thin with additional chicken broth; serve hot. You may wish to serve this soup the next day. It will improve in taste with time.

"Absolutely brilliant combination of ingredients!!! I did not see how this recipe might work but it does, and it is outstanding. The wine brings everything together. The soup has so much depth with th..." See moree sage, pear, shallots and hint of ginger. The only changes I made were 2 cloves of garlic instead of 3 and evaporated milk in place of the cream. Evaporated milk imparts the same texture and taste without all the fat and calories. This makes 4 servings not 6. The soup would do best with a garnish if served to company as it is not very pretty. The flavor more than makes up for the color. Thank you Simone for a fabulous recipe. "
"This was really delicious! The ingredient list is long, but the cooking part is easy. I didn't have fresh herbs, so I used 1 tsp dill weed and 1 tsp thyme. I also skipped the parsnip because they d..." See moreidn't have any at the store. I served this over rice, which made for an extremely hearty and comforting dish. At the table, I sprinkled crushed red pepper flakes on top, because I like spice on everything and because I'm just weird like that."
"I pretty much just eyeballed the ingredients (more garlic, less ginger etc), and I omitted the pear as the ones at the store were rock hard and kinda sorry looking. I used my immersion stick blender t..." See moreo puree, and had to use chicken broth to thin the soup out a little. I intended to have it for lunch the next day but I couldn't stop eating it. Delicious and hearty! Thanks!"
