Today I present you my wild garlic soup recipe with video.

I really like the wonderful soup with the light garlic taste.

Wild garlic is available from March to May.

You can recognize wild garlic by the smell of garlic and that is the best way to distinguish it from “autumn crocus” and “lily of the valley” – CAUTION, the latter are poisonous!

You can be on the safe side and grow your own wild garlic or buy wild garlic in a shop.

The color of the soup is important to me, it has to be fresh and green and have a gentle taste of wild garlic.

I wish you the best of luck and bon appetit!

Semolina dumplings, meatballs, diced salmon, diced cod and prawns are also suitable as a soup ingredient.

The soup mixes up better with cold butter. Put some of the butter, diced into small pieces, in the fridge or in the freezer.

3. Prepare Wild Garlic Cream Soup or Foam Soup

You can prepare the green soup as a wild garlic foam soup or as a wild garlic cream soup, I will briefly explain the differences.

The simplest soup with wild garlic is the wild garlic cream soup!

Tip from chef Thomas Sixt

3.1 Wild Garlic Cream Soup

The wild garlic cream soup is lightly thickened. She is creamy in appearance.

You can add potatoes to the soup set to create a natural binding, or thicken the soup later with cornstarch mixed with cold water to taste.

The wild garlic cream soup is a great soup for Easter.

For Easter I like to prepare poached quail eggs.

You can prepare wild garlic cream soup with or without potatoes.

Potatoes make the soup creamier.

3.2 Wild Garlic Foam Soup

This is the lighter version of the soup and it comes with almost no binding.

The soup is mixed with cold butter before serving and the foam promises a special taste experience.

Wild garlic cream soup served as wild garlic foam soup. Mixing it with cold butter creates an airy and pleasant taste experience.
Wild garlic cream soup is served mixed up, the foam looks nice and the taste of this soup is excellent.

4. How to Prepare Wild Garlic Soup in the Thermomix

You can easily prepare the soup in the Thermomix or similar devices.

Wild garlic soup in the Thermomix, it’s quick and practical!

Kitchen appliance recommended by chef Thomas Sixt
Herb soup for Maundy Thursday, a wild herb soup with a baked or fried egg. Fine Maundy Thursday soup for Easter, Easter celebrations, Easter brunch or the Easter menu.
Prepare delicious herbal soup.

5. Prepare Wild Garlic Soup like a Star Chef

In the Bavarian star kitchen we prepared the soup as follows:

  1. Sauté finely diced onions in butter
  2. Deglaze with white wine
  3. Top up with chicken broth/vegetable broth and bring to the boil
  4. Slowly add the cream and simmer.
  5. Season the soup base with salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.
  6. Then mix in the wild garlic leaves
  7. Stir the soup over ice to preserve the color
  8. When the guests arrive, boil quickly and briefly
  9. Mix the soup with cold pieces of butter until fluffy and serve.

The wild garlic gourmet soup, prepared with chicken broth, is a treat for the palate. Vegan or vegetarian, the soup is cooked with vegetable broth!

6. Tip: Prepare Wild Garlic Soup with Pesto

I like this way of preparing it with wild garlic pesto because it is practical and the color is retained very well.

At the same time, you can control the wild garlic taste better with the pesto.

A little pesto: light wild garlic taste – more pesto: strong wild garlic taste

I add the wild garlic cooking video here.

Cream soup + wild garlic pesto results in fresh, bright green gourmet *** wild garlic soup!

  • Hi Thomas, I cooked your soup 20 minutes ago today. Simply served as foam in a cup. Everyone is excited. Now I have to take care of the chicken 😋

  • At the moment it's just teeming with asparagus soups everywhere 😀 I was very grateful to find an alternative here, which is actually totally in season right now. 🙂 I love the taste of wild garlic and just love the freshness that this plant brings everywhere. Whether as a pesto (I've already discovered it here – that will be my next project!) or soup or topping… wild garlic is really underestimated by many.

    • Hello Marcella, thank you very much for your message, which makes me happy 🙂 I've already made wild garlic pesto twice this year and the soup is available at the weekend. By the way, asparagus is a great addition to soups. Kind regards Thomas
