  Subject: Looking for a Dutch Soup Recipe

  My mom used to make something she called "soup 'n brye".  I don't know if the spelling is correct 
but I know it's an actual thing still eaten in the Netherlands.  It's made with barley, buttermilk, 
and sugar can be added to make it sweet.  I believe she cooked the barley in the buttermilk in a pot 
on the stove.

  Thanks for your help. 


Hello Julie,

Sorry, I can't find any Dutch soup recipes with "brye" or "brie" or "bree" in the name. There are a couple of Dutch soup recipes with buttermilk and barley. See below.

     Rinse The Barley and put it in a pot with the water
     and salt to taste. Bring to a boil, lower the heat,
     and simmer until the barley is tender, about 45
     minutes. Drain the barley. (The liquid can be reserved
     to use in another soup.) Toss the onions into the warm
     barley to wilt them slightly; then put the mixture in
     a soup bowl with the buttermilk. Stir in the turmeric
     and herbs and season to taste with additional salt.
     Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Serve with
     freshly ground pepper and paprika or with a garnish of
     blossoms, such as chive blossoms, cilantro flowers or
     mustard petals. Makes 1 Quart
  Kruudmoes or Kruidmoes

  4 frankfurters, sliced 
  1 cup raisins 
  1/4 tsp. chervil 
  1/4 tsp. thyme 
  Brown sugar or molasses 

  Drain the barley and place in a heavy pan with the buttermilk 
  and salt pork. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook slowly for 2 hrs. 
  Add frankfurters and raisins and simmer 15 minutes more. 
  Stir in the chervil and thyme. Serve in individual bowls and pass 
  a dish of brown sugar or molasses as a topping for the soup. 
  This may be served hot or cold.

  Recipe for making your own pulse.  It is a biblical recipe from daniel 1:12.  
   Thank you

Hi Leslie,

"Pulse" is just another name for dried legumes such as peas, beans, or lentils. The word "pulse" does not represent a particular dish, but a type of seed used as food. The word "pulse" is not Hebrew, but is of Middle English origin. It's in the King James Bible because that's what the English Bible translators in King James' time called peas or beans or lentils. The Hebrew word of the original Daniel 1:12 would have been something quite different.

For more on pulses see here:


If you're making a "Biblical meal", just cook up some dried lentils and you'll have your "pulse".
