WWJD? (What would Julia do?)

We knew Julia Child had to have a recipe for fresh fiddlehead ferns!  (Well, a recipe for broccoli stew, and this author/chef just substituted fiddles!)  Herewith is Cream of Fiddlehead Soup

As kids, Saturday morning meant eating cold cereal in front of the TV and watching Julia Child's cooking lessons. 

Gather all of your ingredients:
  • 1 lb Fiddlhead ferns
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 1 cup minced onion
  • ¼ cup flour (plus more later in case you mess up and the soup doesn’t thicken)
  • 7-8 cups hot veggie stock (I used homemade because its pale color kept the soup pretty)
  • ½ cup milk
  • salt & pepper
  • dried thyme to sprinkle on top when serving
The complete instructions are here.

We are loving the addition of the dried thyme to the top - it adds the perfect amount of contrast to the creamy soup!

Tell us what you think!  We are whipping this up tonight!

We have fresh fiddleheads for sale! Order here!
