Elixir Soup

From The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker  


I have to say, this is my most requested recipe. I generally try to space out recipes that are from the same universe, but due to the popularity of this soup and the winter season AND the fact that I'm sorta sick and am totally considering finally beating Windwaker while I'm homebound... I figured now is the time. This soup is so delicious and nutritious I guarantee it will replenish all of your life energy and magic power. I have to admit, when I first saw the trailers and demos for Windwaker I was kind of disappointed. After the amazing and realistic (for the time) graphics of Ocarina of Time, I had wanted the new Zelda for the new Nintendo system to be even more stunning. Initially, I refused to play the game until a very wise friend of mine sat me down and made me play and it's now one of my favorite Zelda games, even the cell shading grew on me. If you have for any reason skipped this Zelda, do yourself a favor and give it a shot, you won't be dissapointed. In the game, this soup is given to Link by his Grandmother after he heals her with a fairy. Not only is this Link's favorite soup, it is pretty much the best consumable in the game because it heals both your life and magic bars and doubles Link's attack power. Goes to show, even in the enigmatic world of Hyrule, there's nothing like your Grandma's cooking!  My interpretation uses Vitamin C rich vegetables such as yellow squash, carrots and turnips combined with the indisputable healing powers of chicken broth and citrus and satiety effects of butter to create a delicious and flavorful soup that will make you feel invincible. Now THAT is one hearty soup!


Ingredients:

1lb Yellow Squash, chopped

6 tbsp Butter

2 Turnips, peeled and chopped

2 Carrots, chopped

1/4 Cup Cauliflower, chopped

1 medium Yellow Onion, chopped

4 tbs. Lemon Juice

4 Cups Chicken Broth (or Veggie Broth if vegetarian)

3 Garlic Cloves, minced or chopped fine

1 Yellow Chile, de-seeded and chopped (optional)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Chives or Green Onions, chopped fine


Directions:
Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat, cook the yellow onion and garlic until softened, around 8-10 minutes. Add the squash, carrots, cauliflower, turnip, lemon juice, chile (if using) and half of the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, then simmer, until vegetables are very tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for about 10 minutes or until soup won't burn you. Puree the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth (be careful with hot liquids) and transfer to the cleaned or a new pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer on low until you serve, adding more broth until desired consistency. Put in your serving vessel (preferably a corked glass bottle) and add the copped chives or green onions to the surface of the soup for garnish. Drink it with a smile!

  8. Hello,

    This is what I call a nice recipe.
    Is it really 1/4 cup of Cauliflower ?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes! You don't need a whole lot, it just adds a little extra layer of flavor. Depending on how long they're cooked, they sometimes take on a brown color which could change how the soup looks.

  9. Hi,

    I'll definitely try this one, althought I think I'll use a yellow pepper instead of the yellow chile.
    Also, I've sent you an email, is the address in your profile still valid ?

    Regards.

    1. Hey! A yellow pepper would work well too, I'm just not a fan of the pepper taste and prefer chiles. That is an old email address, but I still have access to it. I'll check out your email as soon as I get a chance!

    1. I would say about 5 days (tops) refrigerated? A few weeks if frozen? I'm not entirely sure there, I'm sorry!

    I'm gonna try making it this week. I have a question though, can I use margarine or olive oil instead of butter? If so would the measures change? Thank you in advance!

  21. Great recipe but sad to say people are trying to profit by selling your recipes on Listia. Are they the same exact? Dunno but the images are the same images shown here for the Elixir Soup (they said has squash in it as do yours) and the Chu Jelly.

    1. Hi Jimmy! Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention! I checked that out and have tried asking the guy to remove the recipes but he's being stubborn and disrespectful. I'll probably have to file a complaint form with the site. Thanks again, though, I appreciate it!

  22. Hello! I just wanted to say, I loved this soup!

    I couldn't find turnips, so I used a butternut squash instead, but the flavors worked out wonderfully. Thanks for coming up with such a tasty recipe! I have a food blog of my own, and I'm planning to share how great a recipe this is.

    Thanks again! Keep up the good work!

  23. Wind Waker is my favorite from the Zelda games and I love soup so this seemed like a match made for me. However, I was a little nervous about trying this because I'm not very fond of squash. And I always imagined the soup from the game being more chicken based than vegetable based....despite the lack of Cuccos in Wind Waker. But I got hit with a cold and got sick of canned soup and it seemed like a good reason to try out this recipe.

    The yellow squash at the store was not firm and probably past its prime so I settled for butternut squash, which made the soup orange rather than yellow. I doubled the amount of garlic because I already had cloves packed in vinegar on hand, but they are quite small compared to what you would typically get on a bulb of garlic. I also added some shallots that needed to be used and doubled up on the cauliflower.

    I still wasn't sure I was going to like it until I actually tasted it. If this were the actual recipe in the game I could see why its Link's favorite. :) Sometime I'll have to try it with the yellow squash.

  24. I made this today for my parents and myself. Most of the ingredients are things I normally wouldn't like, but I love this soup. I'm dipping white bread in it, and it's so good. Thank you! I also played Windwaker music while cooking. I used Butternut squash, since Yellow is a summer squash.

  25. Love this recipe. I like to add a small pinch of cayenne pepper to give it a little kick.

    You can get special bottles at most craft stores. I store mine in glass milk bottles because they're easier to cover and refrigerate.

  26. Hnnnnnnng this was soooooo good! I had to substitute butternut squash for the yellow summer squash, and I used a red chili in place of a yellow one since my store's selection sucksm but other than that, this has to be the best soup I've made in a long, long time. Kudos to you for making the recipe!
