RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

SOUPS

SUPA DE SALATA (Lettuce Soup), Romanian

Ingredients
  • 4 tbsp. butter or minced bacon
  • 4 minced green onions or 1 medium dry onion
  • 1 bud garlic, minced
  • 2 heads lettuce (about 2 lbs in all)
  • Lemon juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup table cream
  • Minced parsley
  • Salt and pepper
Preparation Instructions

Cook slowly minced onion and garlic in melted fat until soft but not brown. Wash lettuce, tear leaves in small pieces, add to cooked onions and cook about 10 more minutes. Add salt, pepper, water and simmer 15 minutes. Add lemon juice and simmer 5 more minutes.

Meanwhile, beat yolk in large serving bowl and add cream. Pour soup very slowly, drop by drop, over egg mixture stirring vigorously to prevent curdling. Do not cook again. Sprinkle minced parsley on top. Serve with crackers or toast or better yet, hot corn meal mush. Serves 4.
