Polish Horseradish Soup Recipe

With the fall and winter season just around the corner, I want to share with you my easy Polish horseradish soup recipe.

This warming dish can be served as a perfect starter but also as a proper meal. When you eat it with bacon and hard-boiled eggs, it will keep you full for hours.

The Polish horseradish soup recipe that I am sharing with you today can be also cooked in the vegetarian version. Just skip the bacon and use clarified butter (or any other fat) instead.

Tips For Cooking Polish Horseradish Soup

Use Homemade Or Jarred Horseradish

Depending on your preferences, you can make homemade horseradish paste (recipe here) or use the jarred one.

I prefer the soup to be mild, that’s why I only recommend adding 4 tablespoons in my recipe. If you want to feel the heat of horseradish, add more paste.

Use Leftover Veggies From Rosol If You Have Them

Although the most popular way of using leftover veggies from cooking rosol is to make salatka jarzynowa, you can also make Polish horseradish soup out of it.

You will need to cook potatoes and fry onion and leek separately but cooked parsley root and celery roots from rosol will work just fine.
