Hot or Cold Creamy Lettuce Soup Recipe

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins
Course: Soup
Servings: 6 servings


  • 1 cup chopped onions, green onions, or shallots
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup diced potato peeled
  • 8 cups lettuce leaves coarsely chopped (3/4 lb)
  • 3 cups chicken broth


  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large soup pot over medium-low heat.
  • Add onions & garlic. Saute - stirring often - until softened, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add coriander, salt, pepper, and cook 1 more minute, while stirring.
  • Add lettuce, potatoes, and chicken broth.
  • Bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook until potatoes are very tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Puree your soup - in batches - using the method of your choice. We've used a blender, food processor, and emulsion blender - they all work. Please be careful when blending hot liquids.
  • Transfer the blended soup to a small saucepan, adding the last tablespoon of butter and salt & pepper to taste. Heat through before serving.
  • Top with parmesan cheese & a dollop of sour cream.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to a week or portion and freeze for soup on-the-go!
