čemaževa juha

Cemaž soup

You can take advantage of a spring walk in the forest to collect chemaž.

Chemaž has many medicinal properties. It is considered a food that cleanses the digestive system and blood, and helps lower cholesterol.

You can make spreads, sauces, soup or enjoy it in a salad.

Here is the recipe for a great čemaž soup:


  • a large bunch of cream cheese (approx. 250 g)
  • 2 chayote or potatoes
  • 1 medium-sized onion
  • herbal salt
  • nutmeg
  • grape seed oil


Chop the onion, peel and chop the chayote and wash the chives.

Fry the onion in the grapeseed oil until golden, add the chayote and fry it a little. Cover with water, add fennel leaves and herbal salt. Cook for 25 minutes until the chayote softens.

Put the soup with a stick blender and add nutmeg.

At the end, you can add cooking cream or sour cream.

Good appetite!
