Ingredients (for 4 people)
50 grams butter
50 grams flour (sifted)
1 litre vegetable bouillon, chilled
2 tablespoons of Abraham’s Groninger Mustard (order it online)
125 ml cream
Serving suggestion: garnish your bowl of soup with leeks, crispy bacon, smoked salmon, shrimp or Groninger worst.
Using a large pan, melt the butter, then add the sifted flour. Let the mixture simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring regularly to keep it from browning.
While stirring, carefully pour the chilled bouillon into the pan. Continue stirring until the consistency is even, then allow the mixture to thicken over low heat (approximately 10 minutes).
Add two tablespoons of Groninger mustard (or more, if you like it spicy). Finally, add the cream and stir well. Serve your soup with crispy bacon and leeks.
