Lettuce Soup

Eat this soup chilled or hot. This is a great dish to prepare if you can’t chew your way through another salad! Top with croutons and/or finely diced carrots for a bit of crunch.


2 medium (or one gigantic!) head lettuce, cleaned and roughly chopped

1/2 onion, diced

1 tablespoon butter

1 quart broth

1/2 cup heavy cream

Lemon juice, to taste

Chopped I’Itoi onions for garnish

Finely diced carrots for garnish

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Saute onion with butter in a saucepan over medium heat until softened. Add lettuce and cook until wilted. Add broth and cook an additional couple of minutes. Using an emersion blender, puree until smooth. Or let cool slightly and puree in a blender or food processor. Add cream and season to taste with salt and pepper and a dash or two of lemon juice. Serve warm or cold, with any garnishes you like.
