Polish Strawberry Soup (Zupa Truskawkowy)

© 2008 Barbara Rolek licensed to About.com, Inc.

Polish strawberry soup, zupa truskawkowy, is a refreshing summer soup that can be eaten hot or cold. Although today it has become a "gourmet" offering, it has its roots with Polish farmers who ate it cold as a thirst-quenching lunch when coming in from the fields.

Makes 4 to 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups sliced strawberries
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • Sugar to taste
  • Cooked kluski noodles or croutons
  • Sour cream for garnish

Preparation:

  1. Place strawberries (this would be a good time to use the leftover strawberries from Strawberry Sorbet) and water in large pot. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until strawberries are soft, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Puree with an immersion blender or in a conventional blender or food processor.

  2. Dissolve cornstarch in milk, temper and whisk into hot soup. Sweeten to taste with sugar. Return to heat, bring barely to the boil and simmer 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

  3. This soup can be served hot or cold. If eating cold, chill soup in an ice bath and refrigerate until ready to serve. Portion kluski noodles (or croutons) into bowls, ladle soup over and add a dollop of sour cream.

Polish Strawberry Soup, Member suburbangrandma

Today I prepared the Polish Strawberry Soup, from Barbara's recipe posted here on her blog. Not only it brought back memories of my mom's fruity soups, it was delicious! My family decided on having it served cold, without any pasta or sour cream, and they enjoyed it very much. They felt it was more of a refreshing, summer fruity drink, rather than ""soup"", to be served as an appetizer before a meal, or as part of a dessert spread after a meal. They even suggested sweetening it less and serving it with a scoop of ice cream. The little ones liked it with a dollop of whipped cream. I will definitely make it again, and test the above suggestion.
