Basle Flour Soup

This is a simple and warming soup from Sweden. Made from unusual ingredients it is certainly worth a try.
For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Butter - 1/2 cup
  • Plain Flour - 3/4 Cup
  • Stock - 3 Cups


Take a pan and add the butter. Once the butter is melted add the flour to it and cook until it becomes chestnut brown. Place this flour in a bowl and add stock and mix them thoroughly. Boil for 30-40 mins on low heat. Once done take it out and garnish with pepper and nutmeg. You can serve with cheese if desired.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
