All Over Mustard Soup

 Oerol Festival, Netherlands (13 – 23 June 2014)

Oerol apparently means ‘all over’ in the Terschelling dialect, and this festival does in fact takes place ‘all over’ this West Frisian Island .

For 10 days a year the whole island becomes host to music, theater and art .

Accommodation and camping facilities can be found in the many villages around the island along with cafes and restaurants serving typical dutch cuisine.

A visits to one of these cafes introduced me to  “Mosterdsoep” a deliciously creamy  mustard soup .

This is my simplified or I suppose some might say Anglicized version of   “Mosterdsoep” :

De uitkomst zal het leren!
  • 1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 3  tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 1 tbsp smooth mustard
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 cup sifted flour
  • 1 litre chicken or veg stock
  • 1/2 cup cream or creme fraiche
  • Salt to taste
  • crispy bacon,leeks, chives or cress for the topping.
Preparation:
  1. Sautee the onion  in the butter.
  2. Add the mustard and seeds.
  3. Add the flour and then slowly stir in the stock .
  4. Allow to cook for about 5 minutes before adding the cream.
  5. Season and add the topping of your choice.
