Belgian Endive Soup with Smoked Eel – metabolic balance Monday Recipe

The original recipe calls for smoked eel. I’m not sure how readily available smoke eel is in your neighborhood you can order smoked eel online or use the alternate recipe I found on Immigrant’s table, where she added mushrooms to the soup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Portion vegetables (Belgian endive, potatoes, sweet onions)
  • 1 Portion mushrooms (protein variety) / or 1 portion smoked eel
  • 1 Clove garlic
  • 250ml Vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper
  • chives for garnish
  • Instructions:

Cut Belgian Endive into fine strips.

  • Slice onions into rings and cut potatoes into small cubes.
  • Press the garlic in a garlic press.
  • Place the vegetables in a pot with the vegetable broth and let cook for about fifteen minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
  • Puree the mixture and add seasoning to taste.
  • Saute the muschrooms in a little bit of olive oil and then cut into small pieces.
  • Add small pieces of Muschrooms to the soup. If you decided to use smoked eel, cut the smoked eel into small pieces and add to the soup.
  • Serve the soup with Rye Croutons or with a slice of metabolic balance rye bread.

NOTE:

If you want, you can substitute endive for Belgian endive. They are slightly different but will both work for this recipe.
