Lovely Recipe for Colcannon Soup

I made chicken stock last week and have been searching for a good soup recipe. And I am so pleased with my choice. I have the cookbook Dairy Hollow House Soup & Bread by Crescent Dragonwagon and went with a simple, good recipe for Colcannon Soup. I made it with 6 potatoes, 1/2 pound swiss chard, 1.5 pounds cabbage, and two cups half and half. I blended the milk and the potatoes in the blender. And, I steamed the vegetables for much longer than it said, probably 10-15 minutes. Truly delightful! Here is the recipe. Serves 4.

Do you have a favorite soup recipe?

  1. Suz! Hello from Crescent, who you courteously credited on the recipe above. and I’m so delighted you found your way to my “lovely” colcannon — I think it’s lovely too, because to my mind anything with those good hearty greens is highly pleasing.

    You showed up on my radar because I have one of those Google Alerts things, so anytime someone mentions one of my books, an email pops into my inbox with a link. This has taken me into many different and sweet worlds, as you can imagine, and yours is one I am glad to be a part of, as I share your attitude about joy.

    My publisher has been very generous about sending bloggers of my choice out review copies of my latest book, The Cornbread Gospels, if I ask nicely. Would you like one? I’d be pleased for you to do so, so if you want just e me your snailmail address and I’ll have them get on it. I’m at cdragonwagonATgmailDOTcom.
