Vegetable soup „Across the garden“ – Quer durch den Garten

Deutsch ‚Quer durch den Garten‘ (Across the garden) is a vegetable stew that I know from my two roots, the Palatinate and Hesse. By the geographical proximity to France it is called in the Palatinate also ‚Franzosensuppe‘ French soup.

Pan cake soup – Flädlesuppe/Fritattensuppe

Potato soup – Kartoffelsuppe

Frankfurt Lentil Soup – Frankfurter Linsensuppe

Deutsch Saturday was formerly the day of the stew. That was in the summer ‚Quer durch den Garten‘, a vegetable soup, and potato soup and at winter alternately pea, bean and lentil soup. The winter variants were not possible without the Frankfurters, which were first documented in 1562 for the coronation of Emperor Maximilian II. My recipe is slightly different […]
