4 tbsp creme fraiche

Cooking Instructions

– Chop onion fine and saute in butter until transparent, then add wine and let simmer for about 1 min.
– Add broth, bring to a boil.
– Mix the flour with the creme fraiche and add to soup.
– Let soup simmer for 10-15 min, stir couple of times.
– Add heavy cream and let simmer for another 10 min.
– Cut out of the bread stars and fry them in hot oil until they are crunchy.
– Place stars on kitchen paper (takes of the oil); sprinkle them very lightly with cinnamon and ginger (if you like); it adds a tiny touch of ginger/cinnamon which is actually harmonizing very well with the other ingredients.
– Spice soup with salt and white pepper to taste and puree with a stick mixer.
– Add chopped parsley.
– Serve with the fried cinnamon stars


The soup should be thick. If the soup is too thin let it simmer longer so it will be thickening.
You can use 1/2 l Riesling and less vegetable broth (stronger wine taste).

  1. We just returned from Germany and had the best potato soup ever at at sidewalk cafe in Bacarach. It was called “Riesling potato soup”. Do you know of this recipe? My husband still talks about it. “Danke”.
