This is a rich and flavorful, easy to prepare soup. The longer you cook the bouillon, the thicker the broth will become; you can choose the exact thickness you want before you proceed with the oysters.

Directions

  1. Open the oysters over a bowl to collect all the juice. Put the juice in a one-pint measuring jug. Add to this the 1/2 cup dry white wine, then fill to the top with water to make a total of one pint.
  2. Pour this into a wide pot, bring to the boil. Add the bouillon. Simmer around 30 minutes over low heat.
  3. While it's cooking, heat the butter in a medium pot, add the frozen matchstick vegetables (typically carrot, green pepper, onion or leek). Cook this about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper the vegetables.
  4. After the soup broth has cooked 30 minutes, add the matchstick vegetables. Add the cream and the saffron. Blend this all, at a low simmer, and taste for seasoning.
  5. Add the 12 oysters.
  6. Cook only 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  7. Serve.
