Lettuce and omelette soup


Old and tasty recipe.



* poultry soup (chicken boiled with carrots, onions, celery knob, parsley roots, salt, pepper, etc).
* omlette: 4 eggs, 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 tablespoon milk, 1 teaspoon butter, salt
* vinegar
* one big head lettuce
* salt, pepper
* sour cream


Boil the soup and filter it to obtain a clear liquid. Prepare the omelette. Break the eggs into a bowl, beat until foamy, mix the milk and salt and then pour in the hot buttered pan. Fry at low temperature, and after the bottom has started to brown a little, turn onto the other side and let it brown too. Turn onto a cutting board and cut into thin strips. Add 3 spoons vinegar or more if you like it more sour. Add 3 spoon sour cream. Wash and tear the lettuce and throw it in the soup. Place in the soup bowl and pour the strained soup on top. Serve hot with fresh chopped parsley on top.
