Have you heard about strawberry soup? If not, read how Poles make it! Posted by on May 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

Have you heard about strawberry soup? Yes, strawberry soup (zupa truskawkowa)!

It is actually amazing! Very refreshing and tasty. I’ts almost like 3 in one: soup, main course and dessert!

Does it have a lot of calories? Probably, but I never counted:) It is usually pretty thick and sometimes it’s called “pasta with strawberries” (makaron z truskawkami), not really a soup.

Here is a simle recipe for you:


2.5 cups sliced strawberries

2 – 3 tablespoons caster sugar

1/2 cup water

1 tablespoon flour

1/2 cup cream

1 – 2 cups pasta (your choice)

1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine strawberries, sugar and water. Bring to boil, and then reduce the heat and leave to simmer for 5 – 10 minutes, or until strawberries are soft. Puree with a stick blender or strain through a sieve, pushing the mixture through with a spoon, and pour back into the pot.

2. Mix the cornflour with a tablespoon or two of water to make a paste, then whisk into the hot strawberry mixture. Whisk in the cream, and put the pot back onto the heat. Bring to a gentle boil, then simmer for two minutes, stirring constantly.

3. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving. When ready to serve, divide the cold, cooked pasta between bowls and pour the soup mixture over the pasta.
