I had a similar soup at one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town recently and decided that this is the soup for this week!!! It is a very simple recipe that can be vegetarian (just substitute the chicken stock with vegetable or mushroom stock) OR Vegan! For a Vegan variation I will substitute the chicken stock with vegetable stock, the milk with almond milk, the butter with olive oil and leave out the crème fraiche and parmesan. Drizzle with a generous “glug” of good quality truffle oil and perhaps garnish with some pan fried wild mushrooms for the Vegan option?
This soup is very filling and certainly a meal on its own – a bit of crusty bread on the side can work well with it!
