Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Romaine Soup

2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion
4 cloves garlic
20 ounces romaine lettuce
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
5 teaspoons Better Than Bouillon No Beef Base
1/2 cup Better Than Sour Cream
1/2 cup Original Almond Breeze Unsweetened
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Creamy Romaine Soup

  1. To make the soup, in a large soup pot, melt the butter and add the onions. Cook slowly until softened but not browned, about 10 minutes, and then add the garlic and chiles. Cook slowly for another 2 minutes or so.

  2. Add the romaine and toss repeatedly until wilted, about 2 minutes.

  3. Add the parsley, green onions and chives.

  4. Add the flour and stir to distribute. Cook for 2 minutes.

  5. Add the stock and cream and stir constantly while bringing the soup to a simmer. Simmer slowly to blend the flavors, about 10 minutes.

  6. Remove the soup from the heat, let cool a bit and then either ladle it in batches into a blender and puree or use an immersion blender to puree in the pot. If you want a very smooth soup, put it through a triple mesh, conical chinoise or a food mill fitted with the fine disk.

  7. Return the soup to a clean soup pot and taste for flavor balance. Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste.
