Sadhvi’s Swiss Chestnut Soup!

What you will need: 

A pressure cooker, or pan with a tight fitting lid

A pound or so of peeled roasted chestnuts

Some oil, ghee or butter

An onion, chopped

Some water and some white wine

Some salt

What you do with these things:

 Sauté & brown the onion in the bottom of the pan or pressure cooker

(which I like to use)

Splash with white wine or water.

Add quartered chestnuts. Stir.

Cook with lid tight. Bring to boil.

(if you use a pressure cooker, you know what to do!)

Cool it down and puree with hand blender.

Add a bit of cream or half and half, without any growth hormones, of course!.

Add homemade croutons and some grated Swiss cheese.

Open a bottle of nice red wine.

Serve with good salami, salad, some nice music.

Seriously, you will feel soooo good after this simple meal…try it!

Fresh Chestnuts!

About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.
