CREAMY CHESTNUT SOUP

November 21, 2016

I’m literally addicted to this soup lately. Autumn in a steaming mug of soup! My aunt gave me the idea to try this and I could hug her for it every time I make it. This soup is one of the most delicious things I know. I have to admit most of the time I’m way to lazy to cook and peel the chestnuts myself. Boiled chestnuts are not exactly budget food, but this dish is definitely worth it!
