Dutch Mustard Soup (Zaanse Mosterdsoep)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef Dudo

Never ate this before I came to The Netherlands. It is mostly served as a starter. Originally it is served with little bits of crispy baked bacon but since I do not eat bacon I can not vouch for how the soup tastes when you use it. It is delicious without bacon too!

Where has this recipe been all my life? I am a huge mustard fan (with a vast collection of mustards and mustard seeds) so I knew that I'd love this. I used chicken stock in place of vegetable but that is all I changed. It's perfect in texture and flavor. The whole grain mustard comes through without being overpowering. I used garlic Boursin cheese for the "spreadable cheese." I garnished with the chopped scallions and also served this with croutons, too. I have no doubt that the crisp bacon crumbles would be great as well. Thanx for sharing!
