Ingredients list


  • Peel and finely dice the onion. Cut the peeled and pre-cooked chestnuts into small pieces.
  • Heat the butter in a high cooking pot and sauté the onion cubes briefly. Add the chestnuts and fry lightly over medium heat.
  • Deglaze with the white wine and stir thoroughly to loosen the dregs. Allow the wine to reduce slightly.
  • Deglaze with the vegetable broth and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Then add the liquid cream, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Then carefully blend with a hand blender to a creamy soup and simmer gently for another 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, prepare the milk with a milk frother.
  • Finally, pour the soup into deep plates or bowls. Spread the milk foam on the soup and drip some truffle oil on the foam.

    Great tasting! easy to make. I just wish I had doubled the recipe. It says it serves 4, but it only served 2 people (but we had this as our main dish). I will make it again.
