Ingredients

  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • tsp caraway seeds
  • tsp tomato purée
  • 500g red cabbage, cored and finely shredded
  • 1 large dessert apple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • L fresh vegetable or chicken stock
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp creme fraiche
  • 4 tsp grated horseradish (fresh or from a jar)
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a large stainless steel saucepan. Add the onion, celery and caraway with a pinch of salt. Sweat over a gentle heat for 8 minutes, until starting to soften. Add the tomato purée and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the cabbage and apple. Cover with a lid and cook for 15 minutes over a low heat, stirring occasionally.

  2. Stir in the vinegar and sugar, then add the stock and salt; stir together. Cover, bring to the boil, then simmer for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together the crème fraîche and horseradish in a bowl with a pinch of salt and set aside.

  3. Using a stick blender, whizz the soup until as smooth as possible (if necessary, you can push it through a sieve with a ladle, until only a couple of spoonfuls of pulp remain in the sieve; discard the pulp). Season with black pepper and add more salt if needed. Ladle into bowls, swirl in a blob of the horseradish cream and sprinkle with the chives before serving.
