Dutch mustard soup

I life in Groningen (North of The Netherlands) and this region is well known for their mustard. Maybe I am biased, but I think it really is the best kind of mustard I tried. The mustard is characterized by coarse seeds and a ‘spicy’ and acid/tangy taste.

I think every season is soup season, however, when the weather is getting colder I usually tend to make more soup.

Traditional” mustard soup

Not completely traditional of course (since it is vegan), but very close!

  • 30 gr vegan bacon/spek pieces
  • 30 gr of iceberg lettuce
