SSC #2 Kiwisoup

This is my last-minute entry for the Super Soup Challenge #2 hosted by Tami from Running with tweezers. I made a warm soup of kiwifruit, grapes and some cinnamon. I was inspired by Gary Vaynerchuk who talked about cinnamon covered kiwifruit in his “90 point wines under 15 bones” episode (#286) on Wine Library TV.

Of course the first thing I did was to try cinnamon covered kiwifruit. This tastes really good, I can recommend it to everyone. When I read the blog about the Super Soup Challenge I knew I had to do something with these flavours in a soup. I found a lot of recipes of cold kiwifruitsoup which had white wine in it. I decided to go for a warm alternative with grapes.

The outcome of my recipe is certainly something to talk about. If you are big sucker for sourness taste you would love this. It has a strong acid aftertaste which I really liked. The addition of the cinnamon takes a bit of that strong taste away and also complements the dish. A nice first try, although I feel it still needs some adjustments


Ingredients (serves 2)
3 kiwifruits
50 grams white seedless grapes
50 grams flour
50 grams butter
2,5 dl water

Peal the kiwifruit and cut them into small pieces. Don’t overcook it by letting it turn brown. After a few minutes you can add flour to create a light roux. Add the water in small quantities to the roux while stirring, to ensure proper mixing. Let it boil a bit and then add the kiwifruit and grapes. Softly boil for about 10 minutes. Stick the soup in a blender. Serve it with ground cinnamon.
