What smells remind you of your grandmother’s cooking ?

Is it your favourite casserole or cookies ?

This Grandmother’s Soup (Eingemachtes) from scratch is my reminder.

I remember my grandmother made this soup once a week. I thought it was because it’s budget friendly but later on, I discovered this delicious soup has many healthy benefits.

If you do any research, soon you’ll find out that our grandmothers were right. Chicken or vegetable soup is good to eat when you have the flu.

Vegetables like potatoes, cauliflower, zucchini, carrots, and celery will provide plenty of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. All of them, chicken included, work well to boost immunity.

As for herbs, we add chopped fresh parsley leaves to this soup recipe. There are some other herbs that go well with this kind of grandma soup: oregano, thyme, sage, garlic, rosemary or marjoram.

If you put all the ingredients together and make this soup, you’ll feel like you’re back to your childhood and just stand and wait for your granny to show up !

That’s how good, bursting with flavors and beneficial this easy soup is !

While this soup starts to boil, you may combine egg, flour, cornstarch and oil to get homemade dumplings but if you prefer noodles, it is absolutely all right to add them and enjoy this version of Grandmother’s Soup (Eingemachtes)

 

Would you like to have a slice of bread aside ?

For us, the best is garlic bread, of course. If you enjoy lighter bread versions, French baguettes are great.

Sourdough, rye and multigrain breads match hearty stews and thick soups so, I would recommend you stick to lighter bread versions, if any.

If you prepare large quantities of this soup and would have it for couple of days, please read the following instructions:

This is a kind of soup that should not be at room temperature for more than two hours.

Divide the whole quantity into small portions, place in small containers and refrigerate.

Now, this is something retro to make you feel good. It always works after cold or flu or after being out in a snow to make you warm. Also, sometimes I prepare a double quantity of this soup when having fresh vegetables because I make my office lunches at home every other day. This way I eat homemade food, no snacks. If there is a slice of bundt cake or buchteln or two, who could ask for more?
