Easy Soup Recipes

German Soups

Looking for easy soup recipes that are delicious too? No probs, my German soups will put the warmth back into you without too much hard work.

Anyone who can cut up a potato or any vegetable for that matter can make soup in a little more time than it takes to open a tin and heat it up. My two sons love helping me in the kitchen and enjoy tasting their creations afterwards.

Try my easy recipe using pancakes (flaedlesuppe). I first tried it at a wedding and have been hooked ever since. I have given this recipe to many friends who now also enjoy it.

I normally tend to follow the seasons and their produce, but you can conjure up a warming bowl from almost anything.

Here are my easy soups, I hope you enjoy them too.

A visitor requested a recipe for oxtail soup for her Dad. I got this recipe from a friend, but have never cooked it myself so hope it tastes as good as she says.

Oxtail Soup - Ochsenschwanzsuppe

1 Oxtail, 500 g lean Ox meat or beef, 1,5 l water, 1 bunch of soup vegetables (carrot, leek, celery, parsley, 10 peppercorns, 1 tsp salt, 1 fresh bay-leaf,, 1 small piece of ginger, 1/8 l Madeira

Chop the tail and meat into pieces. Brown in a pan, without fat, with the peppercorns and salt. Add half of the Madeira and the water. Add the washed vegetables, bay-leaf and ginger and simmer gently for about 3 hours until the meat has decalcified and is thready. Sieve the broth into a pan and season with salt and Madeira.

Enjoy with crusty bread.
