About this recipe: I just whipped this up with ingredients I happened to have lying around in December. It tasted good and it's seasonal, so I thought I'd share it, I'll definitely make it again.

Serves: 2 

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (or rapeseed oil)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 10 chestnuts, peeled and chopped finely
  • 90g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and chopped finely
  • 500ml vegetable or chicken stock (cube or stock pot)
  • 50g salami, sliced into ribbons

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Warm the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook and stir until soft, about 4 to 6 minutes. Add the nuts, sprouts and pour in the stock. Increase the heat and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a small frying pan and add the salami. Stir occasionally until crispy, then remove from pan and set aside. Add the rendered fat to the saucepan with the other ingredients and stir.
  3. Divide the soup between two warmed bowls and top with the crispy salami. Serve immediately.

Soup consistency

If you prefer a smoother soup, use a handheld liquidiser at the end of step 2.
