Description

To warm your cold winter nights without worrying about the scale!

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Chopped Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 17-½ ounces, weight Lettuce (I Used Green Leaf Lettuce)
  • 3 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 ounces, weight Breadcrumbs
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream Or Heavy Cream
  • 6 leaves Fresh Mint

Preparation

Saute onion in a large saucepan over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Wash the lettuce and cut it into small pieces. Once onion is softened, add lettuce into the pan with the onion, give it a stir and heat for a second to wilt the lettuce. Then pour in the chicken broth, cover with a lid and let it cook on low for about 20 minutes.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the lettuce from the cooking broth and move it into a blender. Puree the lettuce. Add the breadcrumbs to the cooking broth, then add the pureed lettuce. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper and cook on low, stirring until soup gets creamy.

Serve with fresh mint leaves and 1 tablespoon of sour cream or heavy cream per serving. You can add some croutons if you like.
