Cream of Chestnut Soup in a bowl.This recipe is more affordable, if you buy jarred chestnuts after the holidays. They are much cheaper. It is really delicious and satisfying in the cold weather.


Total Time: 30 minutes to assemble, 1 hour to cook

Yield: 8 servings

  • 1 bouquet garni (10 inch cheesecloth with parsley, thyme, bay leaf and a few peppercorns)
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup cream
  • salt and white pepper


  1. Peel chestnuts, if you are using fresh.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot. add the bacon and the onion and fry for 2 minutes. Don't brown. Then add the celery, carrots and bouquet garni, and stir the mixture.
  3. Pour in the stock and season to your taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the peeled chestnuts. Bring to a boil.
  5. Cover and simmer 1 hour, or until chestnuts are soft.

  9. Blend the soup in a blender or use an immersion blender.
  10. Add the cream.

    Note: Add a little soup and cream in a separate bowl. Then add to the soup. If you add cold cream to hot soup the cream will curdle.
