About Spring Onion Soup

In general, at home we prefer pureed and slightly thick soups to thin, clear soups. So most of my soup recipes, including this scallion soup, are like that too. I love the mouthfeel of the mashed spring onions in this soup. So there is no charge.

In this scallion soup, I also used potatoes to further thicken the soup. That said, there’s garlic, which I really think is a must-have in this recipe as it goes really well with the fresh spring onions. Other ingredients are minimal, which brings out the best in the scallions.

I added a bit of soy sauce which gives it the umami twist and makes it a fused recipe. If you are not sure about it, you can let it go. Olive oil is the best fat to cook this scallion soup as it has that continental vibe. But if you don’t have it, use another vegetable oil or a neutral-tasting oil.

Green onion soup served in soup bowls on a white plate with soup spoons in the soup.

You can even play with the herbs and spices in this soup recipe. Since I wanted to keep this spring onion soup completely vegan, I did without cream. However, if you can’t imagine a soup without a squirt of fresh cream at the end, add it. You can also add your favorite cheese for a light garnish.

This spring onion soup makes a good appetizer or side dish. Goes great with a baguette, French bread or even a pasta dish. Or have a bowl or two for a perfectly filling, healthy dinner.

And while scallion season lasts, here are two delicious recipes I make with those scallions. I love these scallion pancakes and scallion paratha. I am sure you will love it too!

A soup choice

Just like this scallion soup, any other soup is (usually) pretty straightforward to make. You don’t need a page-long recipe to master a soup either, it’s nutritious, perfectly warming, light and filling too. So a good choice for your daily meals.

Generally, when we talk about, or even think about, soup, we picture drizzly days or nice, cool winters. As is also the case with this scallion soup, if you can get your hands on fresh scallions this time of year then nothing quite compares.

But then there are plenty of soups that are traditionally served cold and are still heartwarming! The most classic examples of a cold soup are Spanish gazpacho and Polish cucumber soup.

Soups have always been part of our Indian cuisine. A typical Indianized soup is called shorba, which is also usually a thinner version. For example, Tomato Shorba and Makai Ka Shorba are my favorites. We also have the popular South Indian Rasam, which can be thought of as a spicy, flavorful thin soup.

A soup can sometimes be an appetizer, entree, or even a treat. But its health benefits have seen it take center stage as a whole meal for the past decade. Nutritionists, health freaks and weight watchers have also recommended soups as beneficial meals for current lifestyles.

  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan or saucepan. Add minced garlic and sauté over low heat for 10 to 12 seconds.

  • Add the chopped spring onions and sauté over low heat for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

  • Now add the chopped potatoes and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Stir and mix again.

  • Pour in water or vegetable broth. Mix again. Cover the pan or saucepan over low-medium heat and simmer until the potatoes are fully cooked and tender.

  • Let the soup cool down a bit. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup to a smooth and fine consistency. The soup will now appear thick.

  • Add soy sauce and oregano and simmer over low-medium heat until hot, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • If the soup seems too thick, you can add about ¼ to ⅓ cup of water or vegetable stock while you simmer the soup.

  • Serve the scallion soup hot as is or topped with some croutons or garnished with some scallion greens or parsley or coriander leaves.

  • Use green onions that are fresh, tender, and green. Do not use spring onions that have wilted or dried leaves.
  • Easily add herbs and spices of your choice to the soup. Although black pepper is the classic spice in such soups, you can easily add some cayenne pepper or red chilli powder.
  • Spring onion greens or parsley and coriander leaves (cilantro) are good garnishes.
  • The soup makes 2 servings and you can easily double this recipe to increase servings.
