Ars Vivendi blog, posted a recipe for one of her favourite winter time comfort foods. It is a Dutch winter soup called Snert. She says, "These are the dark days before Christmas. Here in the Netherlands, these days are typically windy, cold and wet. These are days where I like to bundle up with a hot drink and when I really yearn for comfort food."
It doesn't look difficult to make. I'd say it's thicker than the American split pea soup and appears to be every bit as flavourful, if not more so. Click here or on the picture above for the recipe.
