Sweet Milk Soup for Children

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups bread cubes
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 4 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • dash nutmeg

My Substitutions: 2% whole milk in place of whole milk, 45 calorie wheat bread used to make bread cubes, local honey in place of real maple syrup.

1) Pour the water into the soup pot, add the bread, and bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.
2) Add the milk, raisins, and maple syrup. Stir well and bring the soup to a second boil.
3) Add the beaten eggs and nutmeg. Blend well and simmer for 10 more minutes before serving.
The Cooking Monk has outdone himself with this cookbook. Every recipe is amazing and most pages are accompanied by Brother Victor-Antoine's d'Avila-Latourrette's insights and motivational anecdotes.  I think he is a Cooking Genius.

This soup is delicious and made me feel like I was five years old again. The flavor is extremely sweet, so you may want to pair it with a slice of bland toast or crackers. This is a soup that children and adults alike can enjoy on a cold wintry day by the fire.
