Just in time for the slowly worsening weather, I am also slowly in soup mood. What did we have for a wonderful November in Cologne! There was exactly one rainy day and there it just rippled for a short time. Can you imagine that? In the whole of November I did not even have an umbrella with me! When I recited the "November" poem by Heinrich Seidel as a child, I could not even fervently recite this year. Nothing with romping, annoyance, no sunshine or moaning storm winds. The weather in this form has been going on since October - moderate 10 ° C, sunshine during the day. Just great. However, the water level of the Rhine is slowly becoming scarce. Interesting and rather unusual dry period. I'm a little bit worried now that we'll do it twice in December. Let's wait and see. From tomorrow is definitely December and from tomorrow should also catch the rain. That's why this evening there was a fast, fine and very pleasant chestnut soup, which arms me against the coming autumn weather. Goes easy and fast, but tastes nice nutty and spicy, although it requires only less ingredients. And it is also vegetarian if you use vegetable broth! Chestnut soup for 2 servings 1 shallot ...

Fast fine chestnut soup for weather change

Just in time for the slowly worsening weather, I'm getting into mood. What did we have for a wonderful November in Cologne! There was exactly one rainy day and there it just rippled for a short time. Can you imagine that? In the whole of November I did not even have an umbrella with me! When I recited the "November" poem by Heinrich Seidel as a child, I could not even fervently recite this year. Nothing with romping, annoyance, no sunshine or moaning storm winds.

The weather in this form has been on hold since October - a temperate 10 ° C, sunshine during the day. Just great.
However, the water level of the Rhine is slowly becoming scarce. Interesting and rather unusual dry period. I'm a little bit worried now that we'll do it twice in December. Let's wait and see. Starting tomorrow, at any rate in December and from tomorrow the rain should gain entry.
That's why it announced today evening only once a fast, beautiful and very soothing chestnut soup, which fortifies me against the upcoming fall weather.
Goes easy and fast, but tastes nice nutty and spicy, although it requires only a few ingredients. And it's also vegetarian if you use vegetable broth!

I already reported yesterday from the summer and the rest kitchen. And that's when I simply start seamlessly. I still had a refrigerated shelf puff pastry in my fridge (again the very tasty light version), which was just before his zenith and the kilogram of leek was already a few days in the vegetable compartment. So what's better than magic a leek quiche out of it? For 2 portions I baked the qui...

Some time ago I already reported about my first attempts with chard and produced a delicious mangold quiche and a delicious chard lasagna.

And for me chard is also still on spinach on the top list. Aft...
