Lettuce soup... I can almost hear you thinking about wartime recipes... depression recipes... Surely lettuce soup is just short of boiling old shoes for stock right?
I must admit I did this recipe as a bit of a joke... something to laugh about and then chuck out. I had the lettuce and spring onions in the garden so it wasn't going to cost me anything but time... But it was DELICIOUS!! I wasn't prepared for it. Yes really! Delicious!!
Give it a go, it is like an upmarket potato and leek soup - using spring onions and lettuce instead of leek. In fact, I can honestly say that potato and leek soup USED to be my favourite soup... but no longer.
This is nice cold also, with a sprig of mint on the top.
You find this in the Festive cookbook. All my clients have received one as a gift, (if I've missed you... give me a call and I'll send it to you with my apologies) but you can buy them from your consultant for about $15
