Hungarian Apple Soup

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (46 votes)

This savory apple soup for two gets body from Yukon Gold potatoes and a touch of heat from paprika. Float some cocktail shrimp or a mound of lump crabmeat in each bowl to make it a main course.



READER'S COMMENT:
"WOW!!! This was really good. I thought the combo was a bit unusual, but, decided to try it anyway. Used a Gala apple and left the skin on it and the potato. Blended up nicely. Try it, the soup is really good and creamy. "
