Chestnut soup, natural charm on your plate

Chestnut soup

Chestnuts remind everyone of autumn, falling leaves and drinking hot soup by a fire. Because I live in the south for so long, I have started to feel autumn differently. When I smell the roasted chestnuts on the street and trade in my sandals for a pair of sneakers, I know… autumn has started. Fortunately, I have many nice memories of collecting chestnuts or pasting the colored deciduous tree leaves that I can easily recall the atmosphere and smell. This allows me to combine the good of both worlds and also enjoy autumn in a warm southern climate.

  • mixer / blender


  • 30 chestnuts fresh
  • 2 leek only the white
  • 1 onion
  • 1 potato
  • 2 tbl spoon olive oil
  • 1 l vegetable broth
  • 100 ml soja cream
  • salt and pepper


  • Use a knife to make a slit in the chestnuts from the top to the convex side. Place a pan on a medium heat (without oil) and roast the chestnuts for 15 minutes. Note: Cover the pan with a lid. If the chestnuts open and blacken slightly, they are OK. Let them cool for about 10 minutes. Peel them while they are still warm (the hairy skin must also be removed). This is the most labor-intensive work of the chestnut soup… But it's worth it!
  • Cut the leek into fine rings. Shred the onion. Peel the potato and cut it into cubes of +/- 3 cm.
  • Put 2 tbsp olive oil in a cooking pot and stew the onion, leek and potato for 3 minutes. Pour over the stock and add the chestnuts. Let it simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Blend this into a smooth soup and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the soy cream. Serve hot. I placed a few sprouts and a roasted chestnut in each plate.
