Are you ready for more family Disney Movie Night fun? Today’s post features Tangled and Rapunzel’s Favorite Hazelnut Soup. Do you remember the part in Tangled when Mother Gothel tells Rapunzel about how she gathered parsnips so she can make Rapunzel’s favorite hazelnut soup?
“I brought back parsnips. I’m going to make hazelnut soup for dinner. Your favorite! Surprise!”
My daughter loves watching for a nod to the food I make for these Disney movie nights. She always makes us pause it, rewind, and watch it again, as she squeals with excitement.
Tangled is one of my very favorite Disney movies. I love the music, the characters, the humor, the illustration. Its just magical. I knew for sure that this hazelnut soup would need both parnsips and hazelnuts, because Mother Gothel gathered them both for Rapunzel’s soup.
I tried to incorporate other hearty, earthy things that Mother Gothel might have foraged when she was gathering the nuts and parsnips. Leeks, garlic, potatoes, herbs, and mushrooms. It tastes hearty and earthy and herby. The perfect meal for soon approaching autumn.
This soup is pureed until smooth and creamy. No cream needed, either! The blended potatoes, parsnips, and nuts make it luxuriously creamy without a speck of cream. Finish it with savory sauteed mushrooms, toasted hazelnuts, and some fresh parsley and you have the perfect Tangled viewing meal.
This soup is vegetarian and could easily be turned vegan. I note how to make it vegan in the recipe. This hazelnut soup is also awesome on any old week night, even if you aren’t planning on watching Tangled.
Make sure you save room in your stomach for the Tangled themed dessert that I will be posting next! Caramel Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie (because she bakes chocolate chip cookies in the opening song). Made right in Rapunzel’s own weapon of choice, the cast iron frying pan!
I hope you are enjoying these Disney Movie Night posts. We sure have fun making all this yummy themed food and enjoying it to a Disney Movie. I have many more fun movie night ideas that I just need to turn into a post, so expect more fun to come. If you want more of the fun right now, check out my Frozen Disney Movie Night post. I make chocolate fondue and sandwiches.
