Rapunzel’s Hazelnut Soup
Call me a big kid. But Disney has and always will be apart of my life. I grew up watching all the movies and my favorite growing up was about a red headed mermaid wanting so much more and to be with her true love.
Tangled is definitely up there on my list of favorite Disney movies. And I can really relate to Rapunzel as a person. She is silly, ambitious, brave, innocent, and creative. She is not afraid to go after her dreams and found something or “someone” she didn’t expect to help her. I love the love scene in this movie. *sigh* Now, I want my husband to row me out on a lake to release some lanterns 😉
In the movie her “mother” mentions that her favorite food is “Hazelnut Soup”. I knew I had to make it. And a plus on this soup….it’s less than 130 calories per bowl! Maybe you can get the kids to slurp some of this down if Rapunzel ate it.
This soup is filled with essence of nature. From root vegetables to the toasted hazel nuts on top.
