Christmas Chestnut Sausage Soup

This Christmas Chestnut Sausage Soup with sweet root vegetables, rosemary, nutmeg, and dried cranberries is the recipe that screams “Christmas!” No fancy ingredients – that’s all about comfort food for the holiday season.

Hello, everyone.

I am going to keep it short and sweet this week, as I am planning on posting more recipes than I normally do. So many festive things I want to share with you – but at the same time I want to keep it nice and lazy around the Christmas holidays (Just to enjoy the time – not the blog!), so I’ve got to work harder for a few weeks.

Anyway – this Christmas Chestnut Sausage Soup. I can describe it in one word: DELICIOUS! The combination of chestnuts with sweet potatoes, parsnips, and celery root gives those sweet, cozy, and seasonal vibes. Rosemary and nutmeg accentuate the holiday vibes more. I also saw how dried cranberries were incorporated in one Christmas soup recipe, and I liked that idea, too. Certainly, cranberries make this soup even more festive. However, you can easily omit them – this soup already has enough natural sweetness. And the sausage? They’re nothing to deal with Christmas, but I just though why not? Some crispy sausage (with rosemary) on top will never hurt!

Finally, I must admit that developing Christmas soup ideas is getting one of my favourite aspects of the season. I have already shared two recipes this year (Check this Butternut Squash Mushroom Parmesan Soup and this Butternut Squash Chestnut Soup), and there would be one more idea soon. I hope you like this Christmas Chestnut Sausage Soup or any other published ideas and give it a try in December (Or better right away).

Cheers and see you shortly.

    I don’t think I’ve ever had chestnut soup, but I am totally down to try it! Chestnuts are readily available in all of our stores this time of the year, so I’ve got no excuse. And I love some good crispy sausage crumbled on the top of soup. You’ve got one heck of a delicious comfort food bowl right there, my friend. Perfect for sitting back and enjoying the winter holidays! (We’re getting DUMPED on with snow right now, so a bowl of soup sounds awesome!)

    I love sausage in soup and this one sounds like a winner. It’s a mild morning, but with snow in the forecast, a big bowl of your chestnut soup would hit the spot!
