It is a spring-summer recipe that is made of any kind lettuce. In our family, the most common is butter lettuce but today we use romaine lettuce.
We’re preparing the ingredients
For this recipe, we need two pieces of bigger romaine lettuce.
We need four eggs, two cloves of garlic, about 200 grams of bacon and dill.
The first time we breaking the lettuce leaves, and wash them one by one.
After that cut the leaves into not too small pieces.
Let’s start cooking the romaine lettuce soup
In a soup pot, we heat 50 ml of sunflower oil in which we put 3 tablespoons of wheat flour.
Let the flour squeeze a little, stirring constantly until it gets a yellowish colour. This will have the role of thickening the soup a little. Seasoning with one teaspoon of sea salt and one teaspoon of freshly ground pepper.
Then add a spoonful of sweet paprika and a little water to avoid burning paprika and flour.
Leave a minute to homogenise well, then put the cut romaine lettuce in the pot.
We were mixing and putting the water to cover the lettuce well, I put about two litters of water.
Now put the two cloves of sliced garlic.
Let’s boil about 20 minutes, then it’s tasty if the lettuce is not boiled, it’s a bit crispy.
Until the soup boils, we start to fry the eggs, because in Transylvania the lettuce soup is made with omelette and it is particularly tasty.
First, we put the sliced bacon in a pan to fry.
Until the bacon fries, break the four eggs into a bowl.
Season with salt and pepper and mix well (I used the fork) until homogenised.
We bake the bacon until it becomes golden and a bit crispy, after which we poured eggs over.
Roast the eggs until they become an omelette.
Finishing the soup
When the soup is almost ready, put the omelette, cut into bigger pieces.
At the end we put the chopped dill, boil for two minutes, and the soup is ready.
This soup can be served both warm and cold with sour cream.
