From cream of mushroom soup to lobster bisque
In Germany, creamy soups with vegetables or mushrooms are extremely popular. Whether asparagus, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, carrots or mushrooms - the vegetables are usually cooked in broth or stock and often pureed. Then they are mixed with broth, wine or fruit juice, refined with cream and seasoned. Bisque, which originates from France, is also a pureed soup with a strong taste. It is prepared from lobsters or other seafood and finally refined with different spices, cognac and cream. New England Clam Chowder, on the other hand, is more like a stew. The mussels and other ingredients are prepared in a creamy broth. More inspirations about delicious creamy soups you can find here.
