Lettuce Soup image

Creamy Lettuce Soup is a delicious, healthy recipe that uses 1 head of lettuce. Combined with heavy cream, chicken broth and spices, this is a great way to add lettuce to your diet! I love using Bibb lettuce in this recipe but Romaine and Iceberg work good too! Who knew cooked lettuce could taste so yummy for dinner - even kids love it!

Time 22m

Number Of Ingredients 9

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic - minced
1 head lettuce (12-16 oz head, leaves separated and lightly chopped. Any lettuce works, but Bibb is best.)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup heavy cream + additional to garnish
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Heat olive oil on medium heat in medium sized pot.
  • When hot, add the garlic until slightly brown.
  • Add your lettuce, parsley and oregano and stir until lettuce is wilted.
  • Add your chicken broth and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
  • Transfer in batches to blender or use immersion blender to puree soup. If using a blender do this in batches and be careful as the liquid will be very hot.
  • Transfer back to pot.
  • Add your heavy cream, salt and pepper and stir until all heated (about 5 minutes).
  • Serve, garnish with additional heavy cream on top if desired.

Categories     dessert

Time 1h10m

Number Of Ingredients 12

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, sliced
5 tomatillos, husked, washed and roughly chopped
1 to 3 jalapeno chiles, stemmed
2 quarts chicken stock or water
1 large or 2 small heads Romaine lettuce, cored, cleaned and roughly chopped
1 bunch cilantro, leaves and stems, chopped
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 teaspoons anchovy paste


  • In a heavy stockpot, over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Saute the onions with the salt and pepper until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, tomatillo and jalapeno(s) and cook another 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock or water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook 20 minutes. Stir in the lettuce and cook 10 minutes longer. Add the cilantro to the soup and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, and puree in a blender or food processor. If you want a more elegant soup, pass through a strainer. Bring back to a boil before serving. Beat 1 cup of the heavy cream until soft peaks form. In a small bowl, mix the anchovy paste with the remaining 2 tablespoons cream until smooth. Fold into the whipped cream and beat a few more strokes. Serve the soup hot with dollops of the anchovy cream garnish.

Time 35m

Yield 4-6

Number Of Ingredients 6

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 medium onion, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 cups milk
One 12-ounce head romaine, cored and cut into chunks, plus shredded romaine, for serving


  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, onion, 1 3/4 teaspoons salt and a couple turns of pepper and cook until the onion is softened, about 6 minutes. Whisk in the milk and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the lettuce and cook, turning with tongs, until bright green, about 1 minute. Working in batches, blend the soup until smooth; return it to the pot to heat through and thin with milk or water as desired. Serve topped with shredded romaine.
  • Disclaimer: When blending hot liquid, first let it cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer it to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse until smooth.


Lettuce Soup image

An easy Lettuce Soup recipe. This soup is a great way to use lettuce's outer leaves and ribs, which usually go to waste. Any kind of potato and any salad greens, including lettuce, arugula, spinach, and watercress, will work fine.

Lettuce soup image

Lettuce soup is a fantastic way to use up lettuce - or any other salad leaves - that might otherwise be wasted. Lovely served hot and equally good chilled for a light summery meal.

Provided by Justine Pattison

Categories     Starters & nibbles

Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 8

2 tbsp oil (any cooking oil will do)
1 onion, finely chopped
250g/9oz lettuce leaves, trimmed, washed and thickly sliced
400g/14oz potatoes, peeled and cut into roughly 2cm/¾in chunks
800ml/1⅓ pint chicken or vegetable stock, made with 1 stock cube
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2-3 tbsp single or double cream
freshly chopped chives, parsley or dill


  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan and gently fry the onion for 5-6 minutes, or until softened and beginning to brown, stirring regularly.
  • Add the lettuce and potatoes and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add the stock and bring to a gentle simmer. Cover loosely with a lid and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the potatoes are very tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and blitz using a stick blender until smooth. If the soup is a little thick, add a splash of just-boiled water. Season to taste with plenty of salt and pepper.
  • Ladle into warmed bowls and, if you like, top with swirls of cream and chopped herbs.


Cream Of Lettuce Soup image

This is such a delicious soup! It has a lovely consistency and loved by all who I have served it to. This is a real winner! People who have never had it before can't seem to guess whats in it!! Where this recipe calls for Chicken Stock, I use Campbell's Real Stock, and add water. It's so much easier than having to make your own! I usually use 1/2 Chicken and 1/2 Vegetable Stock. If making in advance leave out the beaten egg yolks and scalded cream and add just before re-heating and serving. For the purpose of freezing -leave the beaten egg yolks and scalded cream out until thawed and re-heated.

Lettuce Soup image

This is a soup that my Slovak grandmother used to make when I was a little girl. She used lettuce she would pick fresh out of her garden. I still make this soup every summer and remember her sitting in her kitchen sipping coffee with my mother and aunt. It brings back such fond memories.
