Another Sad Soup

I took an un-official snow day.

So now I am sitting here at home watching the flakes fall and trying to figure out what to have for lunch.

Salad? Soup? Soup and salad?

Then it hit me. I am a Retro WW gal - I can have my salad and slurp it too!

That's right folks, for those of us who can't decide between soup or salad, and just can't be bothered to eat both, there's finally a solution...

LETTUCE POTAGE!

 

1/2 Head Lettuce
Water
2/3 cup skim milk
2 chicken bouillon cubes
Dash nutmeg

Combine 1/4 lettuce and 1/4 cup in blender; process at low speed. Empty into sieve. Repeat until all lettuce is chopped. Combine chopped lettuce, milk, broth mix, and nutmeg in saucepan. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Makes 2 servings.

Wow. This soup was, by far, the blandest thing I have ever eaten. And that's saying a LOT when you consider I have eaten this:

Chicken Buttermilk Loaf - the ultimate barf inducer!

And this...

 Cucumber Gel - it's worse than it looks!

OK, so my lunch was a major disappointment. Bummer. Therefore, I am officially declaring that this is the last time I will puree my lettuce. Ever.

And I don't think I'll be whipping up any more Potages anytime soon. Lettuce or otherwise.

Properly cooked lettuce can be really nice, but it needs a good amount of salt and to be just blanched. It's used quite a lot in French country cooking (but not with milk and a stock cube haha)

Liver. If you truly hate liver, try the chopped chicken liver.
