South African Soups

Butternut SoupButternut soup is a favorite South African starter. The butternut has a flavor all on its own and it is great to serve it as a starter before a good roast beef or lamb.
Crayfish SoupCrayfish (or rock lobster) soup is a great starter for meat or curry dishes.
Mushroom SoupThis is not just an excellent soup, but can be used as a sauce on juicy grilled steaks. For a sauce halve the recipe, but retain the 2 ml (t) curry powder and sprinkle generously with black pepper. Garnish the soup with a few slices of fried mushroom, a little thick cream and a sprig of parsley.
Vegetable SoupEvery country has its own vegetable soup and South Africa is no exception. So when the winters days are short and nights are long and cold - this soup should keep you going.
