Lettuce Soup

This is a delicate, French tasting soup that is quick and easy and a great way to use up extra lettuce.

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons grass fed butter

1 cup onion, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves, plus more for garnishing

2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon

2 heads Boston lettuce, leaves torn

3 cups free range chicken stock

1/2 cup grass fed heavy cream or coconut milk

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Heat butter over medium-low heat in a large saucepan. When hot add the onions and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the herbs and lettuce and stir until the lettuce is completely wilted, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Use a hand blender to blend or carefully blend in a blender (do small batches because it it hot). Stir in the heavy cream or coconut milk and the salt and pepper and simmer for another 5 minutes, or until heated through. Add more salt and pepper if desired, and garnish with fresh herbs. Eat immediately.
