Flädli or Flaedli Soup

Flaedli Soup (Flädli) is a traditional German soup, and quite obviously, a super simple and cute idea. Though this is a German soup, the Swiss love it too. I don’t think you’ll meet a Swiss who doesn’t love Fladli. You can almost imagine its origins. I’m guessing somewhere in the higher lands of Germany. This warm soup was more than likely served up more during the cold months, as it warms you up nicely. This soup is special though because of the savory/savory aspect. It’s the perfect combination of a nice, clear, yet hearty broth (mine is from chicken, but beef or pork are good too), and a savory crepe cut in like noodles. Topped with fresh parsley, this soup is guaranteed to warm you up from the inside out. Così, it’s a perfect soup for the cold winter days.

You can of course buy the pre-made savory crepes and take a major short cut with this soup, but what fun would that be? Make this soup 100% your own. Il crepe recipe is simple enough and can be done and stacked up ahead of time. The other main player in this recipe is your chicken stock. I did a good, hearty stock by cooking chicken parts such as legs, and wings, in water with some herbs and spices added. This of course, enhanced the flavor all the more. In breve, this recipe is a great balance of yin and yang, not to mention a great solution on a cold, chilling day. To pull this soup together, simply slice up the crepes using a pizza cutter, into thin strips. As a garnish you use fresh parsley.
