Lettuce Soup


Yes, I said lettuce soup.  Have you ever gotten tired of just eating lettuce?  It’s good for you, but how many salads can you really eat?  I decided to look into what else I could do with lettuce.  I had 3 romaine heads in the refrigerator and I really didn’t feel like eating any more lettuce.  I came across a recipe for lettuce soup.  Hmm… this could be very interesting.  Try this soup hot or cold!

Romaine Lettuce Soup:

  • 2 TBS of unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 onion, chopped (I used red onion since that’s what I have on hand)
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 heads of romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 1/2 cups of water or vegetable stock
  • 1 cube of vegetable bouillon if you use water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Put pan on medium to high heat, place butter in pan.
  2. Add onions, sauté for 8 minutes or until onions are translucent.
  3. Add garlic, be sure to stir ingredients around and not let the garlic burn.
  4. Add parsley and lettuce.  Constantly stir to let the lettuce cook.
  5. Add some water and bouillon to help cook the lettuce.  If you’re not using any bouillon, add 1/4 cup of stock.
  6. After all the lettuce is wilted transfer contents to a blender and add enough water to blend the contents well.  Do not add all the water, this is to ensure you don’t have a messy kitchen and get soup splattered on your face. If you don’t have a blender, use a hand immersion blender but make sure the contents are in a pot.
  7. Heat contents in pot, reduce the soup if desired.
