COLD APPLE SOUP – “ALMA LEVES”
This is a vegetarian’s dream soup. It’s being served cold in the summer or lukewarm in the winter time. It’s like having desert before dinner. Fast and easy to make and if you love the taste of cinnamon/apple/vanilla/sugar combination you’re going to be in Heaven after tasting this delight.
- 4-6 apples, peeled, core with the seeds taken out, sliced to your delight
- 3 Qts. of water
- 1 Tbs. of lemon juice
- 1 large cinnamon stick
- 1 tsp. of salt
- 2 Tbs. of sugar (you can use brown sugar if you desire)
- 3 Tbs. sour cream
- 2 Tbs. of flour
- cinnamon powder to sprinkle it with when served
In a 6 Qt. soup dish bring the water with lemon juice, sugar, salt and a cinnamon stick to a boil. Add the peeled, sliced apples and cook it for 10 minutes. Don’t overcook the apples.
Mix the sour cream with the flour in a Magic Bullet or food processor and add it to the soup stirring it frequently so no lumps are formed. A good tip here and for all your sauces is to add some cooking liquid to the mixture to avoid lumps from forming.
Bring the soup to a boil and adjust the taste. If you like it sweeter, add some more sugar, if you find it too sweet, add some lemon juice. After it cooled off discard the cinnamon stick and enjoy!
Serve it cold or lukewarm sprinkled with powdered cinnamon on top.
