Black Walnut Soup

Submitted by: Elizabeth

Recipe Ingredients:
3 Tablespoons Butter (Unsalted)
1 Tablespoon Minced Shallots
1 stalk Celery, Minced
3 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
6 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth or Vegetable Broth
1 Bay Leaf
1 Tablespoon Salt, plus more to taste
1/8 Teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper, plus more to taste
3/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon Black Walnuts, Lightly Toasted
3 cups Heavy Cream

Cooking Directions:
1.  In large pot over medium heat, melt the butter, add shallots and celery and cook, stirring 3-5 minutes until softened. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly for another 2-3 minutes. Add the broth, bay leaf, salt & pepper and walnuts. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, uncovered for about 20 minutes. Add 2 cups of the cream and simmer for 15 minutes more.

2.  Remove bay leaf. Working in 3 batches, puree the soup in a blender. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.

3.  When ready to serve, reheat the soup. Place the remaining 1 cup cream in the blender and blend on high speed just until foamy. (Do not blend too long or the cream with separate.)

4.  Lade the hot soup into heated bowls. Place a scoop of foamed cream on the top of each serving. Using a zester, grate the remaining toasted black walnuts over the top of each serving.
