Cooked soup with black root

Nutritional Value

I was treated to a black root, or as it is called, "Scorzonera spp". I've heard of it before that boiled scorzonera is an exquisite delicacy reminiscent of asparagus, for which it's called "winter asparagus". But I've never seen or tasted it. I've also heard that it's very hard to peel, etc. д. etc. п. Well, a little tortured the Internet, I found everything I need - and in fact it turned out that there is nothing difficult, if you know how to properly. I thought I'd post this. Might be good for someone.

How to cook black root soup step by step with photos


Here's the root itself, it's even shaped like asparagus, only black. The most important thing is to wear gloves before you start to peel it. Otherwise you won't be able to wash your hands for a long time. Prepare a cup of water, in which you pour the vinegar or lemon juice. The water must be very sour, since.к. The root quickly turns dark in the air. So wash the scorzonera well, I used a brush.

Then peel it like asparagus. But we would rather cover the table with newspaper to avoid scrubbing off the peelings.

Peel and chop potatoes, celery and leeks.

Heat oil in a saucepan and gently simmer for a few minutes. Heat oil in a saucepan and gently simmer leeks and celery. Add potatoes, bay leaves and pour hot stock or water. Bring to boil and simmer for about 3 minutes. 5.

Add black root cut into pieces and pour milk over it. After boiling turn down the heat and simmer for about. 20, until softened.

Whip cream. Process soup with blender. Add the cream, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and salt. I throw in a little more sugar and a whisper of nutmeg.

When serving, sprinkle with walnuts and herbs.
