Is it possible to cook flour soup?
Of course, in real life, soups are prepared using flour.
I'm sure many people haven't tried these soups, but I think it's worth trying to appreciate this dish. Here's an example of a flour soup recipe for you.
It will require:
- wheat flour - 6 tablespoons
- butter - 1 tablespoon
- onion - 1 pc.
- salt, pepper - to taste
- water or broth - 1 liter
- garlic - 2 cloves
Fry the finely chopped onion and chop the garlic.
Add 2 tablespoons of water to the flour and stir.
Put a saucepan with water (or broth) on fire and bring to a boil.
Pour flour crumbs into boiling water. Stir.
Cook for about 15 minutes.
Then add the onion and cook for another 15 minutes.
At the very end, add chopped garlic and salt to taste.
Quite! There is such a soup in Belarusian cuisine, called "Grout"
For 4-5 servings you will need
1 Stack flour
1 chicken egg
4 cups milk
4 stacks of water
2 tsp sugar
1-2 tablespoons butter
Drive an egg into a bowl, and adding flour, knead the dough, it turns out in lumpy pieces.
Put the resulting mass in a dry frying pan and dry slightly. The degree of dryness depends on your taste, I like it when the dough starts to brown a little and takes on a light nutty flavor.
Boil the water and put the dried lumps of dough into it (everything that was in the pan), boil for 10-15 minutes, pour in hot milk, reduce the heat and cook for another 15-20 minutes. Do not forget to stir the soup so that it does not settle to the bottom and does not burn ... At the end of cooking, add salt, sugar to taste, season with butter.
You can use chicken broth with vegetables instead of milk.
Of course available! Dozens of recipes for flour soups are known to modern cooking. Of course, they all contain other ingredients, ranging from vegetables to meat or fish. It is enough to hammer the phrase "flour soup" into any search engine, and a whole bunch of links to the cuisines of different nations will immediately pop up.
Well, if we consider only water and flour, then perhaps here it is more likely to talk about a dish, in terms of consistency, like a puree soup or liquid porridge. I don’t know how this dish will taste, even if you add salt and a little oil or fat, but it will definitely not become a masterpiece. But nevertheless, it will be edible, in something useful, and may not even cause disgust, neither in its taste, nor in its appearance. Well, as a kind of historical footnote - in the besieged Leningrad, such a soup was considered a huge delicacy and many would be very happy to have it at least on their table!
