Recipe for a yellow week.

My upcoming book, which I've already mentioned here, will be in Norwegian only. As far as I know there are mostly English-speaking readers here at The Blue Café (any Norwegians around?), and this means that you will not be able to read the book. A pity for you of course ;-)
I will give you a little peak though, sharing a few of the recipes I've created for the Lent Rainbow Calendar. Let's start with this Yellow Vegetable Soup which tastes heavenly.

One rutabaga and four carrots are peeled and cut into small pieces. Boil in salted water till they are soft/al dente. Make a white sauce of 2 tablespoons (ts) butter, 2 ts flour and 1 1/2 liter broth. Mix 2dl cream and 2 egg yolks and add this ti the broth. Warm, but not let it boil, untill it starts getting thicker. Add the vegetables, salt, pepper and parsley.

I know I am terrible when it comes to translating my recipes into English........I hope you can understand what I mean. Good luck.

I would like to try this soup as my little family loves rutabagas. Would you know how to translate "2dl" of cream?

This looks delicious! And your recipe seems like a fun one to do with my family. Thank you for sharing! Perhaps this summer I should learn Norwegian, as I just bet your cookbook will be full of gems!
